A man with far too many questions trying to work out how the world works.

My primary interests are in UX and education as a whole - specifically in finding ways of improving or remaking the education system so that it is still appropriate to the world we will live in at the time that students graduate.

@nadyne probably closer to most users intent. If you decide that you are going to guess at a users intent, it's best to confirm this guess with them than just do it. The way outlook does it, you still have to click 'Ok' once, and this way you also only have to click once.

@AthomSfere Instructions don't have to be step by step to be instructions. Based on then screenshot users are being given instructions.

comment Show 6 share buttons vs one button that opens tooltip with 6 share buttons
@3nafish It's a guideline, not a rule. Use what works for your site, but there has been a lot of testing on this that has shown ranges that work for sites. Yes, those change, but none of them that I have seen have been large numbers of sharing options.

comment Show 6 share buttons vs one button that opens tooltip with 6 share buttons
@3nafish I said "3 or 4 at most, but only if those 3 or 4 options are actively used by your target audience". I don't see the conflict.

@user958624 There is no 'nice' solution for every metric when you are combining two systems that were never designed to work together. It's never going to be clear UX wise, so the next goal is to make it simpler to understand.

comment Designing bidi text editing
@user958624 The idea of a block cursor is that it clearly indicates whether you are inserting into a ltr or a rtl text element. If the cursor is on a rtl element, you will insert on the left. If it's on a ltr element, you will insert on the right. If you had ab[c]CBA and entered a d it should become abc[d]CBA. If it were abc[C]BA, it would also become abc[d]CBA.
