It facilitates reading the text in moderate traffic. If there are other vehicles on the road and you are following at a safe distance, you will read the closer text first as your view of the farther text will be blocked. This allows you to read the full message incrementally. Obviously this breaks down when there is no traffic and you have decent vision, ...

In complete agreement with the other answers, but to provide an alternate viewpoint: If you were driving at night, your headlights will reveal the beginning of the sentence before the end.

You read as you approach. Theoretically. In reality, levels of visual acuity mean that some people (like you and I) can read the whole block at once. Another reason that painting information on the pavement isn't always ideal. Here's a good visual for how this is designed to function in practice: The trick is (as the image above shows) the spacing of ...

I have bad vision. I can see well enough to drive, but if that message is more than a line or two, I won't be able to read the beginning of it before I've passed the end of it. They're written backwards for me.

Observations It's hard to answer this without a better understanding of what style constraints you're facing, but: Account information is related, so I'd be inclined to keep it on one page if possible. The principle issues with long-page data are user orientation and navigation. Field layout is secondary to those concerns IMO. As a result, typical UX ...

I had a similar situtation a while back and my fix was to use an accordion style UI. Despite having all those fields, your headings give you one advantage: organization. Since your data is organized, you can put them in accordions, that can expand/collapse. By default you can collapse them all, so the user can visually see all the headings, instead of ...

Show all items on a single page in a vertical list This obviously has limits as it is almost never a good idea to display thousands of items at a time. Though putting a list of a hundred items on a single settings page is fine especially providing some way to quickly filter the list at the top. Chunking them into groups as you have done is a good first ...

What are the user needs? Based on the information from your questions I would also go with 3) and I'd like to mention 3 points: Long pages using a scroll bar is widely accepted UX Myth #3: People don't scroll Make the content sexy: use images, categories, charts, comments, ... Whatever is possible. Make it more comfortable for the user. E.g. a fixed index ...

I'd be inclined to say present it as a whole page (your option 3). With a caveat...that you present it in a way that doesn't feel like one long page, but a collection of things. You say you worry about it being overwhelming, but it doesn't have to be like that. Provided you chunk the information well, making the headers and titles clear (but not shouty), ...

Some suggestions for showing 'Temporary notification window' 1. Time should be sufficient so that a normal person can read whole message. 2. Message should not go off when user is keeping his/her mouse pointer on that, it shows user is focusing on this. 3. When window gets disappear, it should be in fading kind of slow animation not abruptly. 4. message ...

I'm surprised that no one has flagged this as an accessibility concern. I recommend that you avoid having timed messages at all because you can't determine how long it takes for someone to not only read the message but also understand it. Recommendation: Include a "Dismiss" button to allow users to close the alert in their own time. Source: ...

I'd like some clarification There isn't any. There is no such thing as 'ideal' line lengths. There's a handful of small studies but they are all flawed in that they can't isolate line length very well as a single factor. What makes type legible, readable, and just plain comfortable depends on a whole range of criteria: the typeface design leading ...
