This is determined by whether the action is bulk (will be performed on more than 1 item) or individual (will be performed on each item at a time). As you can see, compress will act on all selected items, whilst duplicate will act on each item separately. So the copy of bulk actions changes based on the selection, where that of individual items doesn't. ...

UX is not about rules, it's about solving unique problems within unique context. Problems in UX differ greatly as there are always many variables involved, so each problem is looked within its particular context. There really isn't a "best place" to put navigation - it depends.

I think it would be totally fine with the Edit button contextually relevant to the content or segment. You can try to disable or hide the Edit button when users switch to other segments. But it's true that the location of the button makes it a bit like for the whole page. The alternative approach would be that having the Edit button in the header of the ...

To start with I recommend you use colour combinations with high levels of contrast. http://webaim.org/resources/contrastchecker/ You can also play with the alpha opacity (CSS3) to distinguish between hierarchy with the more opaque element being the most prominent. Primary: background-color: rgba(203, 244, 203, 1); Secondary: background-color: rgba(203, ...

The existing approach you have taken is perfectly fine and doesn't go against iOS guidelines. Try and see if you can place the edit action in footer of the page. Even iOS follows the same convention - check their Clock app and see the Alarm & World Clock tabs. Edit: If you see, the Edit option is same for the World Clock and Alarm Tab

I don't think it is particularly important to make millions of content items directly available via navigation. If you look at other sites with similar amounts of content, they hardly ever work this way. Instead, the way one accesses content is: Search. This is a much more efficient, friendly way to find what you want in a huge sea of content. A ...

I'd also take a look in mobile guidelines (aka Android & iOS Human interface guidelines). Since "long press" contextual gesture does exactly what you describe - context menu opens, but no action is hit - this as well might be the "cause" for the change. It also applies to hyperlink usage on mobile devices: Long press -> Copy URL, but link is not ...

Google's guidelines explicitly mention something about the order of the items in a menu: Menus with static content should have the most frequently used menu items placed at the top of the menu. Menus with dynamic content may have other behavior, such as placing previously used fonts at the top of the menu. The order can change based on user ...
