Redundancy in interfaces isn't always a bad thing. Different users may find one or the other. Some are more comfortable hitting the Close box. Others like seeing the button and knowing what it does. Some users will hit Escape, another redundant operation. This is all good, as long as it doesn't clutter the interface too much. You could remove one of these, ...

The way I see "Apply" and "OK", "Apply" is more like a preview, which allows the user to make changes without the risk of blowing things up. "OK" is more of things.

In many Windows dialogs, there are multiple tabs. The point of the apply button, in my opinion, is to make changes in one tab and apply them before moving to the next tab. Suppose user was sure they've made the changes in the current tab. They would Apply those changes, and then move on to the next tab to make changes. The dialogs are at times very ...

Your UX is all about "change the template". The required template may be (a) the default or (b) local file. In future say a selection from most recently used file list or a resource from a shared template library is useful. You could display this domain model this flat in the UI much as you have. But if extra capability or clarity is needed, then could ...

You might be overthinking this "problem". The functionality is simple and everything is accessible with as few clicks as possible. Only thing I would suggest is to alter the wording and say "Reset to Default" for lesser ambiguity. If you want users then to be able to (re)select their previous templates easier, you should have the field to transform to a ...

You need to be delicate to solve this matter. Basically what you are trying to do is to tell the users that particular content is not available at the moment due to connectivity problems, but it might become available in the future. At the same time you don't want to distract them with spinners or changing messages so they could focus on the content/videos ...

Having multiple progress bars is probably quite annoying and too detailed. Using spinners is more easily digestible on a Pinterest-like video wall but could be annoying as well. The ideal solution might be to only display to the user content that is playable immediately. Users will be happier if they first expect/see a small amount of content, then are ...

I don't find any arguments for placing "Cancel" button on this form. "Cancel" means abandon whole process, not go back to the previous step. I would consider to add some autosave mechanism, user shouldn't think about saving his work, system should display information that all changes are saved. E.g. Google Keep:

You may need to rethink the button wording as @Jose mentioned. The cancel button gives me the impression that if I click on it, it will cancel the whole process. I wouldn't feel confident to click it. Maybe 'Reset' or 'Reset to Default' are a better choice. However, before make any changes I would have a clear goal of what you want to achieve there. Do you ...

As it stands, the use of the word 'Cancel' for that button makes it very confusing to understand its function and they way the button works in unintuitive. It might be a matter of changing the button's functionality and changing the wording of the button to clarify what it actually does. Perhaps the button should allow users to exit the process without ...

You should be mindful of gestalt principals when grouping or aligning controls. Gestalt principal of perception states that when looking at a complex visual image, our minds see coherent, whole forms, rather than individually perceiving all of the smaller elements in the image. For grouping controls, alignment will of course make a form more pleasing to ...
