comment Is it true that “the only 'intuitive' interface is the nipple”?
@Kostya If the task is new to the user - e.g. filling out a tax return form for the first time - it can take a lot of learning. Separating "UI knowledge" and "domain knowledge" can be useful. The UI can help - be more "intuitive" or "learnable" - by a) reusing standard UI conventions for standard operations like "save" or "undo" so the user doesn't need to relearn things they already know from elsewhere, b) reusing standard "domain" concepts and terms, so if the user is told that "this deduction goes in attachment X" they can easily find it in the UI, and c) provide examples.
