comment Is designing in photoshop a thing of the past?
@DA01 Well, that's partially what I meant. People who claim that designing in photoshop is a thing of the past (and they're usually the same who claim that UX professionals must know code) tend to forget that not all of UX takes place in the browser. Outside of the browser both claims are pretty absurd.

@CodeNewbie Yes, it looks different, and I don't have any idea what it is.

And if you're designing a desktop app, you'll be designing it in C++? :)

comment What is this character ?
@Blam Well, naturally it's a square here because it was recognized by the SE input mechanism as a square, and that's the only way SE can display it now. The question is whether it's what the OP really sees in his document (probably yes, but it can be amusing if it isn't).

Is the character that you refer to a square? Or is it something else and it just looks like a square on this site because of rendering issues? Can you link to a screenshot of the character?

I'm afraid it's called a "UX person". Or, to be more exact, "a wireframe sketcher".

@chaiguy The tabs are dynamic, that's the whole point.

@chaiguy Only if the real estate is extremely important. Otherwise - a dropdown is much more cumbersome for selection, it's very unconventional to have a dropdown dynamically populated by items you select on the same page, it doesn't work at all when there's a single value, and it offers no visibility as to its contents until you expand it. Not a great solution IMHO.

comment What is easy to perceive? Width or height?
Then I suggest going for the first option (vertical lines). You're afraid that drawing them with create an illusion of a trend and you're right, but from what I understand, your users are supposed to be familiar with the nature of the data and shouldn't be confused. Not connecting them for this reason is making the users work much harder just to avoid a vague possibility of them making a small and inconsequential one-time mistake.

Outlook, if you set the Reading Pane on the bottom. Gmail if you split your screen horizontally. Pretty much every email client supports this, and in general most software that has a table controlling a preview area (since they try to display more columns at the expense of some rows - the table takes up the width, and the split is horizontal).
