Here are a few ways you can hint at this functionality: Provide an alternative method for zooming in and out via buttons - it looks like flotchart provides this functionality. By seeing the zoom in and zoom out buttons, users may simply try to pinch because that functionality is commonly associated with zooming. Same idea as above, provide an alternative ...

You are blending two distinct concepts here: The development of ideas and the propagation of ideas. The examples you have listed were all developed through a great deal of user research over many decades of interaction design. "Swipe" and "double click" did not emerge out of the ether, they were developed by industry leaders through an iterative process of ...

As JonW said; i think you trying to ask if it's a good idea to put it in the upper left and I think not. There are ergonomic issues with placing things there (see picture below). A swipe from left to right could work however and is a common pattern (though you should still inform the user about the whereabouts of the navigation). Placing a commonly used ...

Essentially this question is about the difference between usability and user experience. User experience is about how the user feels. Improving usability by removing unnecessary cognitive load etc. is essentially removing friction from the process so things move along smoothly. However this does not automatically lead to a good user experience. Filling out ...

25 columns is just to much yes. I'm liking the second solution where you give the user control of the columns. I had a similar situation where I thought some columns were irrelevant. A quick survey told me however that most users looked at different columns effectively making every column relevant. My solution was a quick test where I let users pick the ...

A shot in the dark but anyways :) Image 1 is Scan page, image 2 is Accept page, image 3 is Scan page with a miniature of the recently captured image from Accept page. The basic idea is to give feedback that something is being captured (image 2) but even when the image has been taken, give feedback of what was being done and captured (image 3).

Before one can understand the why or how, they need to understand the what. To understand the what, people really need to understand the differences between: Convention Best Practice Standard Based on this article, here are the differences: Definitions Convention an agreement, implicit or explicit, among a group. My practice is mine alone, ...

About the menu: I agree with Dave, that you could perhaps explore possibility to have it vertical, albeit you could gain more with simply restructuring and hoping you can fit all menu items in one row and still have only 2 levels. However, another alternative would be to have the top navigation contain only the most primary and sought after links that most ...

I would entertain thinking slightly differently and exploring a vertical side navbar. Perhaps, provide some organization to the navigation links. Two or three categories may help the user better digest your offered nav topics. Also, the text does not need a shadow, the white on dark blue pops for pleasant reading. I hope this helps.

An old and common approach is to use a button bar (you know, the thing before tool bars and ribbon bars). In terms of usability we want to reduce the mouse-movement from an item to the desired action. For this several enhancements are available out there (for sure, all with some trade-offs). Inline buttons which appears only on click on the row ...

Why don't you have the actions show up inline? download bmml source – Wireframes created with Balsamiq Mockups This will help it appear as though the actions effect each row in the data and not seem too disconnected. Also, here's a solution if you have bulk actions: EDIT: REMOVE can be handled with a bulk action as per above. FLAG can be ...

This is a good question. I've been wandering if there is a better way to document interactions for over a year now and have been trialling a few different things. I've taken inspiration from a lot of different places and below are the different types of methods I've created/trialled in the past with some success. The images below show interaction with an ...

The water faucet. (Or possibly the electric socket - see below) I read it as about interfaces to complex technical systems - the system providing clean water by means of pipes, pumps, filters etc is certainly complex. And a device to regulate volume per time of water by interaction of typically rotating an element should qualify In terms of numbers, it's ...
