My interface allows users to move things that usually have fixed positions in other applications, such as text boxes. What can I do to make it obvious to the user that they can move certain objects?
The ideas that come to mind are:
- Add a unique border around movable objects
- Change mouse cursor to a "grab-it" icon when hovering on the object's border
I want it to be obvious without the user already having the idea that they can drag things around.
