For a specific project drawing app, i have a bit of a problem with the terminology of some of the buttons. Namely the buttons to save a drawingboard and to return to the drawingboard 'gallery'.
In bottomright of the screen, i have 3 buttons:
- Preview: Show the current drawing board in fullscreen (hides all settings/tools)
- Cancel: Return to the gallery without saving (if changes are made, asks to save)
- Save: Save current drawingboard and return to the gallery.
Now, I thought this would work with the actions described above, but i learned that the "save" button shouldn't return the user to the gallery, just save the current drawingboard. This makes the button "Cancel" a bit weird, imagening the following userflow:
Create drawingboard -> Draw -> Save drawingboard -> Cancel (to return to gallery)
I thought I would just rename the button cancel to something else, but i can't think of any good term that would cover it.
- Finish (i'm finished with this drawing)
- Close (i'm closing the current drawing, saved or not)
- Back (i want to get back to the gallery, which is the previous screen)
- Exit (i want to quit/exit the current drawing)
They all seem off of the action performed, which is just returning to the gallery.
