I am a UX|UI designer working in the Financial Industry. I love to tackle challenges in design, making user experience the focal point. My daily concerns involve translating complex information into intuitive, meaningful, and productive designs and producing software that makes life better for my clients.

Learning, sharing, and collaborating are a few of my passions.

comment Should “toggle buttons” show what they do or the system status?
Great discussion- I found this site uncharted.designmap.com/?p=321 to be helpful in a further distinction- toggle vs lightswitch.

comment Start form disabled and require “edit” button to enable it?
Was merely thinking that the path might determine whether a form was editable by default based how the user arrive. Say they had to Add a new account vs reviewing an existing account. Or different permissions exist based on the role. Having elements disabled/ enabled because of such predecessors can be smart design. Editable and non-editable forms can and should look slightly different, if only via disabled/enabled controls. And if you know this, then you don't have to annoy users who primary purpose is to edit, and you don't leave "reviewing" users at risk of inadvertent changes.

And in the case where it's more like 50/50, could you possibly use the path the user took to determine the default step?

comment How to structure data intensive view with form fields and master-detail?
I think Alexey's design implies the "input" fields are likely data labels, where you have Name: value/data, rather than field label + control. At least that's how I would interpret/ approach them.

comment Should content be left aligned or right aligned in a table that contains a mix of text and numbers?
And my apologies, you asked specifically about the column labels- there is a lot of room for design interpretation here, but safe bet is center align, not beholden to alignment of columnar data.

comment Use of mobile Actions icon on Desktop?
Oh, and the reason for the 'up arrow' is because the user asked to be able to navigate directly to the parent of the item they are on- without having to use the grid. The user will have the ability to hide/collapse the grid, to make more room for the forms at the bottom, and their work flow frequently takes them up the navigation (which is a many to one). There is not a workflow to go the other direction, because there are many children to one parent.

The arrow up icon will have a mouseover. We tested with the business and they "got it" right away. Also, the tree grid echos the navigation- clicking on a level in the tree grid will navigate the user to that node. That functionality currently exists, so the user pattern is there.
