Not only elderly users are confused by the change from the default - everyone is. Elderly users may be more confused than other people. You say that moving the scroll wheel / touchpad / slider counts as "an action", but moving the mouse does not because it's "easy/natural" and because you're discounting cursor movement. I don't see why it should be ...

It is better if user is in control of whether fields auto-updates on contat selection or not, hence provide a top 'Auto sync' checkbox in the fields panel. If auto sync is set, fields automatically update on contact selection, If auto sync is turned off user needs to explicitly update the fields by either double click or right-click menu button on the ...

You've asked for graceful degradation... this isn't ideal, but a variation of idea 1 would work reasonable OK. Give user a text field with a search button next to it. User types in their search string and hit search. Page refresh to show them a list of the best matches as radio selections. User can choose to select an option, or choose to search again. ...

This is similar to what BrunoH suggests: http://grasshopperpebbles.com/demos/multilinelist/get_selected The sample is at the bottom of the page, after a lot of code. It's not that I recommend this plugin, I only wanted to show an example of a multiline selection artifact. Given that you must display several names, and that the availabe screen width is not ...

My suggestion is not to put the information in one line but in a more readable way. If you read an address you would expect something like Name Street City / ZIP Instead of Name, Street, City, ZIP So why not populate the Selectlist in this way. This way the user would have to scroll down more, but it is easier to find the right tenancy.

"A" (the drag and drop option) is probably the natural choice on a tablet with touch interface. Unless that arrangement is impractical for screen space reasons, it will probably be more pleasing for the users. (who are, presumably, using a tablet at least in part for that kind of experience)

A [+] or attachment button in the chat box would be a better solution here as it can also ensure cross-platform compatibility. You can tap/click on the attachment button and you can call an attachment layover with "easeInOutExpo" effect. You can then either choose an item from the layover or tap/click anywhere to dismiss it. I think this will not eat up any ...

You state that you must display the full name of (up to 4) tenants and the full address of the property. Must this information be displayed at all times, or only when the user is making their selection? If the full information that you described need only be displayed when the user is making a selection, then abbreviated information might be used in a list ...

I gather you're using a select box because only 1 selection is valid? What about converting each option into a radio button? e.g. https://jsfiddle.net/mz9a22cd/

I agree: drop down menus that are more than, say, five words wide are cumbersome. Users won't (perhaps can't) read all of the text, and so the extra information means they actually comprehend less. I would either a) find a unique subset of the information (the address?) and have that in the select box, or find another way to choose this (property ID, with a ...
