comment How to end a polyline drawing
The dangling element isn't a necessity. I've used double click for an action that both places the last point and ends the polyline, and it worked well.

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?

comment Website UI specification builder?
I'm afraid it's called a "UX person". Or, to be more exact, "a wireframe sketcher".

comment Alternative to tabs with long names
@chaiguy The tabs are dynamic, that's the whole point.

comment Alternative to tabs with long names
@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).

Can I think of any real-world examples of... master-detail relationship? Well, yes, quite a few :). Update on click, use scrolling for many elements.

comment Alternative to tabs with long names
Here you actually pay a much higher price for the long names, than in the original. In the original you had less tabs fit in a row, and it was specified that only a few tabs would be needed normally. But in this suggestion you significantly reduce the available real estate within each tab with every character that you add to the tab name.

comment What's a good way to transfer a user from a mobile site to a desktop site?
It's a heavy-duty IT management work tool... Imagine adjusting Visual Studio to a mobile device :).

@DA01 I guess you could say it's broken, in the sense that the user won't be able to do anything or see much.

The experience doesn't break down anywhere, it's meaningless to have this app on a mobile device to begin with.
