comment How wide should input fields be?
Can you elaborate your answer? I'm not designing for mobile here and I figure that's not going to work well in desktop or web, especially with more than one field.

comment How wide should input fields be?
Balance is the key. I would never make a money field the same length as a free-text field just because they look nicer when they're aligned. But I would always try to keep the variety in field length as low as possible and make fields with similar input the same length.

comment How wide should input fields be?
Thx for the article. The three options are merely variations, they are not options that I want to pick from. Regarding alignment: I would usually use left aligned fields, except for the case when I need to align sums (but then again, all money fields would have the same length).

comment Should I use a dedicated “Please select” radio button
The problem is that having nothing selected also means that after a selection, users can't ever deselect. They can't undo what they selected. In my case, users can share documents between other user. Those documents contain all kinds of forms, dropdowns, input fields, radio buttons etc. So one user might give a document to another, who says "please undo all your changes, I'll start over". Users would be able to save at all times, but they won't be able to finalize the document without valid selections in radio groups and data in mandatory fields.

@Majo0od both the dropdown and the radio group would have descriptive labels, the mockup is just simplified.

comment Is a dropdown design or a picker view design better ui design?
There is also a Date Picker Control in iOS, so no need for 3 individual Pickers. See developer.apple.com/library/ios/documentation/UserExperience/…

comment Indicating that text was user-modified
Someone who doesn't know what the style means, sees just two different text styles, so the edited one could be Nr. 3. But it could also be both Nr. 1 and 2.

comment Indicating that text was user-modified
I like the suggestion using icons. But the icon choice in this case might not be ideal, some could misinterpret the pencil as "editable" or "click here to edit" instead of "this has been edited". Also, in the UXSE example, modified means that a comment has been expanded or corrected by (usually) the same user who made it. Whereas in my case, a user will rather overrule something generated by the system.
