You are right, it's a natural thing to scroll down when you see a list with an arbitrary number of items. If 6 is not arbitrary, then make sure your users are not expecting more or less. On the other hand, there is no harm in scrolling up or down, the user quickly discovers that the entire list is on the screen and gets used to it. You can help that by ...

Most of the people scroll-down because of a huge amount of websites and apps that are using it more and more. I would use some typography and i would add on some distance from the bottom. Maybe something like a footer. but i still think the average user is used to scroll "by default"

If the user has that large number of entries, I think is a better idea to sit the final user and get the requirements of the task that he is actually trying to do. I don't have all the context but what is he trying to achieve: If the user has to review all entries one by one (for example an accountant needs to review all the balances to see what is not ...

If I understand your question correctly, what you show is called row editor or row editing plugin: Not to be confused with inline editors: which only allow to edit one field at a time

This is a pretty loose question, but I think I know what you're after ... In-line or contextual controls They are really just buttons, but they apply to minor interface elements at the local level. As you point out in your examples, this pattern is most often used in data-heavy, highly editable views. Since the number of editable elements can be relatively ...

Because your list is really long, you should look at ways to make it shorter. Harvest has a great open source library for presenting lists. You can create a dropdown with all your options You can group your categories in to a single dropdown list. http://harvesthq.github.io/chosen/

Managing a list of anything... that is over ~50 items is tricky unless you have (or in this case provide) the right tools. Paginate the results - seeing more than ~100 of something on a screen is not very usable (If the user needs to see a larger set/all at once, provide an export option where they can manipulate the data externally) Sorting - provide ...

If the element is clickable, make it noticeable and get rid of any uncertainty about the affordance of the given element. In order to achieve this, you can try different options: use a floating button action as trigger: this is the Google Material approach, so it's meant for Android, and it visually helps the user to clearly understand what is a header ...

Your question is logical. As per my opinion you have already solved this problem (I mean, you already have the better solution). The reason is if any user is a frequent purchaser then from the complete list he will just add it to cart. So placing add to cart on the list of perfumes is perfectly fine. If I am a new user, I would prefer reading some ...

I think you have a bigger issue here: Radio inputs are unique, so the giant list is not needed at all, it only adds friction to the flow. You also say this: So the hierarchy from top to bottom goes Community > Sub-community > Collection Thus, why don't you simply let the user select the Community, then display ONLY the available sub-communities for ...

Why is the list being built? In my experience, these lists consist of a lot of entries that will be used for some kind of bulk action.

Why do you present an extra list with the ressources, where only a few of them will be enabled/ highlighted and most are disabled? This doesnt make sense. I would recommend to skip the ressources extra list and just put the dedicated ressources at the end of every article. Thus the connection is clear, it is in focus and chances are high users will click on ...
