comment What tools are sitting in front of a creative user experience designer during most of their workday?
@Khal, and if you're still working out where some of the concepts go (like when doing concept mapping), you can write things on stickie notes so you can move them around on the large sheet, then take the whole sheet of paper with you when you're done.

comment Managing multiple windows in one application
+1 for docking. The panel is available when needed and clearly associated with a bloc (so no confusion about which it belongs to), but it's easy to get out of the way when not needed.

comment XML editor design indents XML without tabs/spaces - disadvantages?
@pgfearo, I would think that "leave the file the way you found it except for the actual user-initiated edits" would be the only reliable way to remedy this.

comment Which is more motivating to continue a process until completion: a percentage, or the number of steps?
+1. If steps are uneven in length you should give a true percentage -- % of effort, not % of steps.

comment Best place for placement of error messages on a form (both generic and specific)
+1. Placement should be driven by the user workflow; put the message where he'll be looking when you generate it (or want him to act on it).

comment XML editor design indents XML without tabs/spaces - disadvantages?
Oh, I didn't know that about Notepad (I use it rarely). But think of this as a class of potential problem; there are lots of editors out there, and if you change the source document (as opposed to just how you render it) you may well be breaking one of them. Arbortext's Epic does this, for example, and it completely messes up the ability to diff two versions of a file, which is important when reviewing changes in source control.
