In our application, each view has a title bar and a toolbar. The toolbar contains two types buttons:
- Actions: e.g. Create new project, action is performed in the same view
- Navigation links, e.g. Go to workflow, link leads to another view
As our app is extended, the number of buttons increases as well. Example:
Currently there isn't a good way to tell both categories of buttons apart. What is a common practice for solving this? Should action buttons even be on the same toolbar as nav buttons?
EDIT The action buttons I mention are not related to specific content. If they are, our app will display them in the vicinity of that content.
