comment Showing items in a list with limited space
Hi rewobs, Very sorry if i was unclear. We do have a scroll on hover, but I don't want to make it persistent, as some of our ui is very cramped, and we lose real estate to labels. Since our users are advanced devs, I see no reason to not go w/ hover scroll, but I posted this in hopes of if there's any other devices I haven't considered. I'm trying to keep a crowded UI as pared down as possible.

1. It is desktop only. 2. we're not concerned w/ supporting mobile 3. Our audience is API developers. Our users are super technical. And I've not seen evidence in usability testing that people are missing the list items. That's why I'm pushing against adding more chrome to the UI. I can't show more of the screens (nda), but we have some IDE screens, plus analytics pages that use this device currently.

comment Must the buttons of a touch interface be round because of the shape of a finger?
also, the problem with a circular button, is that there is less room for an explicit label, which lets the user know exactly the action they are taking.

comment What is the advantage of drop down list appearing in front of control instead of below it?
Good example... The only thing i would add is that for top aligned labels, you lose context with the overlay. Not a huge deal, but for long lists with unfamiliar items to choose from, users may lose context, as they cannot view the label.

comment Best position and labels for buttons on an order creation page
Is it important to short circuit a process such as loading a package? It appears that once a package is loaded, like the rows above, you can delete it. If loading a package is a reversible action, and is non-destructive to the order, why not let the user just load it, then decide if they want to cancel. Otherwise you have two interactions: delete a detail once it's been loaded, or abort a process. Either one gets you the same end result, at least it appears that way. If you can provide more context, that would be useful.

comment Checkboxes with several options
Excellent solution. One other option to add to this could be: Once you've checked off an option, the whole box (or module) changes visually in a subtle way, maybe a tone change, so users can see what activities they've clearly selected.

comment numbers on a credit card expiry date year form
It's not only easier to type, but I've found by looking at a bunch of credit card images, they appear use the YY format. This way users that are reading off a card (especially older users, who may not be keyboard savvy, but are frightened of input errors) don't have to alter the format they see in front of them. It's 1:1
