This is a pretty simple interface so I only see three options: Leave it as is Move the difficulty to a second screen that appears after the start button is clicked Put the difficulty under the settings menu you have on the footer. Not #2 First of all I want to say I would rule #2 out because there is no need to make the user select their difficulty ...

Copy and paste were originally intended to act between two containers (folder A, folder B). Clone, on the other hand, is within-container. Copy and paste are two actions, clone is one action. So if the user intention is to clone, why make this a two-action process when you can do with one? Then: Automatically duplication an object in a list ...

It's usually referred to as 'Multi-select autocomplete' in my experience. I haven't seen any guidelines previously (or from searching now) but this demo and code link might help you in some way jQuery Tokeninput.

While there are quite a few similarities between the Start menu used in Windows and a hamburger menu, I'd say there are a few key differences in their execution. Amount of Content One of the biggest arguments against hamburger menus is the amount of navigation friction they introduce. Usually these menus contain a small number of buttons or functions that ...

There's not yet a widely accepted term, but most terms and descriptions point the same general direction. On Android, these are called DotsPageIndicator. According to Apple's guidelines all the dots together form the Page Control and it indicates the number of views. Bootstrap's Carousel plugin calls them Indicators JSSOR calls the combined element ...

I would call the set of dots a navigational indicator for an image scroller/carousel In the iOS Human Interface Guidelines these dots are used on a page control, which is very similar to an image carousel if you think of an image as being a view or page. And are decribed as: A page control indicates the number of open views and which one is ...

You mean what those circles are called or what the whole page element is called? The element is called (image) carousel, circles are probably just circles or dots.

If you wan't to have a selector with 3 states I wouldn't use a toggle, a toggle button is good if there is only two states (or two plus a default like I tried to show in comments) but if you want to introduce a third state there becomes issues such as which state to switch to on click, and how to properly show what each state represents. The slider: ...

Search Token/Tags could be a good general name. But Google came with another one in its Material Design Components: Chips

I think they have been adopted from "Search Tokens" on OS X. A unit that functions as a special, adjustable search term. Tokens are great because they make searching less error-prone and easier to manipulate. The functionality is different as search tokens refine search to a specific field. However, it looks similar as far as UI is concerned. ...

I like the current layout. But I would probably ask the user to select the difficulty every time they press a start button

I think the reason the listboxes solution doesn't work is because its actions imply the objects are being moved from containers to groups (or vice versa) which isn't the case. Eg., when you assign an object from container1 to group2, it doesn't actually get removed from the container. If I understand correctly, the items in each container can be managed ...

It is not something that I have seen. One thing to keep in mind is that if you implement an uncommon feature on your site then you're asking users to learn a new mechanic and are increasing their cognitive load (perhaps unnecessarily). If it's only 2 categories, why not just have them both expanded from the start? If there were numerous categories I could ...

In the scenario you are proposing (drag and drop items from a long list), several factors must be taken into account. Every factor might present potential hurdles to the user. On screen real estate: is the target easy to reach? Check Fitt's Law. List item size. Unwanted scrolling: when reaching the bottom of the screen, the screen will start scrolling ...

I agree with the points stated by @JonBee, but I think the main difference lies in the options (content) we are showing to the users, and the purpose of an App or a PC. Usually, we give our mobile users content to consume as soon as they get into our app, so they don't have to wonder what to do... they just start consuming what's on the screen -plus, they ...

One of the critical piece that made the Start button work was a sustained, ubiquitous, multi-million dollar ad campaign. It would be hard to understate the effect of this on users' ability to understand the Start button.
