i have got the easiest way, just simply add "pre" with angle brackets after starting with "form" command and closing it with form. by doing this all the input type command will b lined properly and if you you still want more space just simply add space between the text and command

In most cases I agree that it is the better option to minimize the number of steps or actions the user needs to go through. Accepting a ToS is a different thing in my opinion. Even though most people probably doesn't read the ToS anyway I would consider it too important to "hide" the action. Unless you make the text below the Sign Up button VERY visible I ...

This UI is a control interface for AVD command-line tool and is developed to support future versions of it (without need of changing UI itself). Future versions of AVD tool may have different options so UI for these options are constructed automatically every time AVD settings is shown. And since there is no possibility to know how these options are related ...

If you can only select one of several options, than radio buttons is the control to use. In this case, check boxes and error message only makes the user confused and annoyed - and that's really bad. You lose the trust of the system, which makes it easier for the user to move to competitor tool.

At first, please make yourself sure that such a feature is necessary — you describe you checklist as "small", so multiple selection can make your tiny checklist more functional, more complex, but it can be not useful for and unused by most users (so by adding such a feature in certain contexts cane make the checklist worse, not better). If such a feature is ...

Yes the space between a checkbox and its label should be clickable. This is because if a user clicks the space in between its usually because they intentionally wanted to click the checkbox or text label, but accidentally moved their mouse to the gap. You should account for these user mistakes and make the gap clickable too. Here's a good article that shows ...

This is one of my favorite Photoshop features that I am amazed isn't more prevalent. (It's used in the layers panel to show/hide layers). I never realized it was called checkbox strafing though (awesome name!). It's one of those odd things that initially feels like it will be clumsy and unusable but in reality feels extremely natural and efficient. It's ...

A "drag to select" paradigm in a list box is not common. I have never seen this used, although apparently it does exist in Photoshop. A more common quick selection paradigm is clicking on one item, then holding down shift and clicking another item, which selects all items in between. Users are not going to expect this drag to select behavior, and ...

Is it possible (or likely) that a user could select both Level 1 & 2? If not, it might be an option to organize the data hierarchically based on the level offered (eg. Level I courses, Level II courses etc) with sports listed under each one Although this might lead to more repetition, the competency levels would be much more clearly delineated.

The giant spreadsheet you've laid out is nobody's friend. There's nothing wrong with page navigation when it's sensible. And I understand that clicking 'next' through 30 activities doesn't qualify as sensible. But there are other options. Is this just a survey of what the user is interested in, and what they might like to see you offer? Or are there ...

When looking at a large set of data and realizing that the organization is not working, you want to look at how the information as a whole can be presented differently - not just swapping out a single control for another. That's my short answer to your specific question. You do have a lot of checkboxes and they are confusing. Start by looking at a different ...

Changing labels is clearly confusing because as a User I might not remember if i checked or unchecked something or it was just checked by default. Also I don't see controls or toggle buttons as a good fit to solve the problem. Definitely not the way to go. Changing the labels is a creative solution if used properly inside a context that allows such ...

I would recommend you to put your descriptive phrase on a new line, as it changes the logic of your textbox (the user gets confused, as the label suddenly changes). download bmml source – Wireframes created with Balsamiq Mockups
