comment Why is scrolling with the mouse wheel (i.e. in Chrome) in discrete steps?
I first thought it may be a it's easier to implement thing, but the trackpad behaviour on Chrome for Mac is smooth but mouse scroll is by incremental steps. Interesting.

comment How to indicate primary vs secondary placeholder text in madlibs style form?
@bdv Okay so is it safe to say there's a line underneath each text input. Consider using a different color for the line (say some shade of red since that's typically the color used for required *). I hope you also have validation on the form... it ought to be enough of an indicator along with validation notices that those 2 fields are required.

If this is a limitation of the system, then it's not a matter of whether it's an acceptable solution. It's what you have to do.

comment How do I politely ask the user to refresh after concurrent editing has occurred?
So you can't have a button on your error message that when clicked on refreshes the data for them? If the system can warn them the record has been modified, surely it knows the record ID and thus you ought to be able to tie it to the same action as what's used by the list to load in the clicked on row's data. Seems a bit strange. But if you really need it done this way, consider "Error. Cannot save your changes. Another user has just modified the item. Please reselect the item from the list to see the most recent changes."

comment Are there studies on how well window glueing is received?
@Vlad I'm used the photoshop's implementation of dragging and dropping to group panels. It's very visual based as oppose to using trigger keys. It's also a heck of a lot more work to implement. youtu.be/jup9kMp681w?t=5m I think you should ask the question, are floating/grouping panels really necessary for your app before you implement them.

comment Is a wizard appropriate when the previous steps may need to be changed/modified?
Agree with Nathan. It doesn't sound like a traditional wizard. For step 2 & 3 are there lots of complexity there that prevents you from putting these two things together in a single screen? If not, perhaps you should group them together since they are so interconnected.

comment How best can I lay out a selection of options in a hierarchy - and let people select at any level?
Ran into pretty much the same problem myself. ux.stackexchange.com/questions/58439/… Didn't get much of a response so I'm looking forward to seeing people's answers here.
