@2rs2ts What made you think it's a one-way transition...?

comment Are two toggle buttons better than a tri-state switch?
@tohster The latter two cases are unlikely.They won't be getting any new info except what's in the grid, so changing their minds is usually because they pressed the wrong button or they weren't very sure in the first place, so it's a coin toss for them. Later changes are also rare, because the main flow is akin to a wizard to get the project started.

@tohster Yes, In and Out are the actual choices (it's about scoping tasks into a project). Undecided is not a very meaningful option in itself. The main reason that it's there is because there is no default state, and I don't want this choice to be irreversible. I feel that the answers so far disregard the "grid" factor, where the user needs to go through a large number of these quickly, and make choices as he goes. If this was taking place within a form, it would be a very different situation.

Please see my reply to Blam. Yes, the tri-state switch is essentially a group of three radio buttons, I know that. I meant that having two radios won't work. I will update the question to clarify that.

@Blam In the toolbar of your favorite text editor there will be a three-way switch for left, middle and right adjustment of the text. Hardly inventing it here. The fact that it looks like a command to you is probably due to the L&F of the Balsamiq prototypes.

@Blam These are two buttons that change their state when pressed, making them two toggle buttons... I meant that two radio buttons won't work. Three might, although it's the same as the three-way switch.

I'm sorry, your answer is very confusing to me. The first option in the mockup is (what I called) the switch, but you refer to it as the toggle, which is what I called the 2nd option.. AFAIU the "invisible option" exists in the toggles but not in the switch, where it is visible. Also it seemed to me that you said that the first one is clearer, but then you say that it wouldn't work with your users. Could you clarify?

@plainclothes Does it mean that they use multiple browser windows, or that they just browse one site at a time, using the same window?

I'm curious about your statement about the many users who don't know how to use tabs. Is there any data available on this?
