comment How can I display a definition to my users on mobile?
It doesn't scale well, because on a large screen you have a much greater distance to cover between the top and bottom of the screen, you users will get tired and frustrated quickly. An in-place tooltip-style solution will be much more appropriate.

comment Displaying sub-filters in menus
Could you explain what you mean by "in menus"? The filtering part is pretty clear, but the general layout of the screen is not. Can you provide a screenshot or a quick sketch?

comment Field label alignment and the problem of internationalization
I'm assuming that you follow the same convention with other controls, so that if you place labels above input fields, you will also be placing them above dropdowns or radio button groups. No..?

comment How to accomodate and/or with brackets in field filtering system
The question can't be closed because of the bounty, but it's a duplicate of Intuitive Interface for Composing Boolean Logic, which has some good answers.

comment Laptop + external monitor = virtual screen arrangement?
Option C is brilliant! It's always bothered me that with a multi-screen layout I'm losing that "magic pixel", and now I don't have to. Already changed mine. Thanks!

comment Alternatives to tabs when displaying list and map (appbar issues when scrolling in Material Design)
I've never been a big fan of the "if company UX does it then it must be right" approach. Because we can't really know their considerations, tradeoffs and limitations, and because tomorrow they might roll out something entirely different.

comment Alternatives to tabs when displaying list and map (appbar issues when scrolling in Material Design)
I would either use a "switch" instead of a single toggle button, or use a single icon that can be pressed or unpressed. Having an icon change to a completely different icon right under your finger is a bit jarring.

comment Are there any web presentation systems that does this?
It looks like the best reference would be HTML emulators, e.g. jsfiddle, htmledit, w3schools tryit.

comment What is the best font for extremely limited space, i.e. will fit the most READABLE text in the smallest space?
Richard, if you'd like to disable close votes on questions that had reached a certain number of upvotes, I think that MSO is the right place to suggest that.

I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because it's a typography question and it can't be answered in its present form

I'm voting to close this question because the basic premise is wrong.

comment How to convey that an indicator is clickable
@RogerAttrill I agree that it's borderline.. For me it does fall on the other side of the fence, but that's just me :).

Have a comparison table with the competing, more expensive brands.

comment Why do some blogs and sales pages capitalize all words of titles in languages where such a form is not natural?
I think that the reason is that people aren't familiar enough with the capitalization rules of their language, along with the prevalence of English. They see title-case being used in English and they think that that's how capitalization works universally. I see it in Russian all the time (and in at least some of those cases I know for a fact that this was the reason, because once you show them that Russian has different capitalization rules, they stop doing it).

comment Why is the 0 next to 9, not next to 1?
You're making a wrong (but extremely common) assumption here. Placing commonly paired keys together doesn't speed typing up, but slows it down - because your fingers get in each other's way. Type "encyclopedia" and then "stewardesses". They have the same number of letters, but alternating hands (encyclopedia) speeds you up, while "stewardesses" is a very unpleasant word to type. That's also one of the reasons that people believe that QWERTY is bad. AFAIK there is no conclusive evidence that Dvorak is better, especially when you consider that there are many parameters in this, not just speed.

comment horizontal drop down
Keep in mind that this layout is very unfriendly for scanning. A vertical list can be scanned much faster than a horizontal one.

To be honest I don't really see the difference, but I'll retract the close vote in any case :).

@JWMC By now, I seriously doubt that it ever will :)
