[+] icon is there to indicate that this row is expandable. So, in effect, you can make the whole row clickable. To progressively indicate that a row is expandable you can at hover state Underline the row [+] My Documents //normal [+] My Documents //at hover state Show a number of child items like [+] My Documents //normal [+] My Documents - 3 ...

They are very small, which is very frustrating, and so the likelihood of accidentally clicking on one of them is also relatively low. This is both a negative, and a positive. Hence the question you ask (what benefits outweigh the negatives). Minimizing and maximizing are not the most common functions. Usually you open or close tabs, change between tabs, or ...

If you go by the principles laid out by Edward Tufte. Less is more. He describe this as the "Data-ink ratio" "Data-ink ratio = data-ink / total ink used to print the graphic = proportion of a graphic's ink devoted to the non-redundant display of data-information = 1.0 - proportion of a graphic that can be erased without loss of data-information" One ...

I'm sure you've figured this out by now but for anyone who finds this later - I would definitely go with the uniform style. In Select2 you don't have to display the search. You can use the minimumResultsForSearchproperty in your initialization. So it would look like: $('select').select2({ //options minimumResultsForSearch: 20 }); Then it would only ...

The window management buttons are not the primary way of managing windows. They are a convenience shortcut that you can choose to use or not if you find them convenient or not. They are small to keep them out of the way because they are secondary and because window management is not the primary task the user is performing in any given window. The primary ...

This way the user knows that their initial click has indeed registered a response and they can't "stuff it up" by doing a second click. And the fact they ...

I would not recommend using multi-select (because people often don't know how to use it) or drop-down select (because of the danger that if someone scrolls down while they still have the focus on the drop-down select, it can change the selected value without them realising). This article from A List Apart, Sensible Forms, has some helpful advice and ...

Facebook 'Like' button is not appropriate for requesting items on your site that are not available because the intention of the user is not liking the item but wanting to request that product. Like doesn't mean they want to buy it. I would suggest solutions where you encourage the user to take action by providing more details. It's a win-win scenario. You ...

You need to add request button explicitly. Purpose People around the world are used to like buttons , not just from Facebook but in many other websites. Like buttons as world knows it has a different purpose. Using a like button to request an item that is not available is not something that user will expect. It is far from obvious. On the other hand you ...

As others have said, it depends on what you want to accomplish. You specifically highlight the "white noise" effect due to having so many overlapping nodes and edges in your 3D force layout, so I'll focus on that. I recommend using a different layout. Force-directed layouts tend to have high node density toward the middle, and in 3D that means the dense ...
