I Agree with Daniel Brown when he says that "it's important that you know the persona you're developing for" Case in point: I am working on a similar problem, though my end users manipulate hierarchical data to verify its quality before importing it to a database so calls to action are quite different.This being said, I think the solution I am working on ...

Your hierarchy reminds me of the nested hierarchy of parent and nodes in iOS development(Xcode) interface. I have a windows machine and this is not to compare the two but from a pure user experience point of view, I find checkboxes quite confusing when there are too many children in the list. If you could highlight the selected child after selection, it's ...

Hmm.. The only UI that comes immediately to mind is the "Turn Windows features on or off" dialogue. You can see similar UI during advanced software's install process. It is similar your application in that: List of nodes Nodes can have children All nodes are "selectable" Note that different icons are used when all versus not all children are selected. ...

The Problem isn’t Having the Right Control For the purposes of visually adjusting a curve shape, any of your solutions (wheel, slider, buttons) sound adequate to me. The wheel is probably best because it is direct manipulation, and, as your testing revealed, users seem able to drag to the exact slope they want -it’s just that the curve doesn’t comply. The ...

They're not as uncommon as I thought - this Form Usability guide for Slider Interfaces recommends them for e-commerce sites. They also point to some example sites, of which Lens Hawk seems to have an implementation along the lines of what you're looking for. You effectively ...

The benefit of a "paged" approach compared to a "next" button is that the user can easily skip from e.g. page 1 to page 7. Are there ever any circumstances where it is useful to skip from page 1 to page 7? If not, use a "next" button, on the principle that all else being equal, the fewer widgets you have to put on screen the better. (Or better still, ...

Is this good design? Specifically why or why not? What would you change about it? If you are referring to the flag states of deactivated with an error like state, then I would say this isn't a good solution. The 'why not' springs from my understanding of how everyone reads from top to bottom and how in this example the user is presented a deactivated ...

In short: A cookie is a small data (max 4kb) that a web server saves to your computer via web browser. So it can track down any type of data that the website wants to track but with only your activity on their site, not elsewhere. Like: session, maintaining data across multiple visit, holding your shopping cart content, login details, and such... It can be ...

I suggest to display every language for field on the same screen, without switching tab. You could use a list of input or plain text like: English: "This is my description" Italian: "Questa è la mia descrizione" French: (empty) ...and so on. In case of plain text, it could be followed by an icon "Edit" (or "Add" if empty) to open in a modal window; in ...
