Where is that quote from, and at what contextual level is it provided?

comment Three state button for a medical chart
Clear, simple and contextual with what users are used to. Love it! You could even do the slash from top left to bottom right if you auto-detect the user is left handed.

comment Verb to indicate “de-activating account on a web site”?
@AlexD - interesting to know that the tentacles spread that far - and that the data is not under your control as such, despite basically being a middle party, providing a service.

comment Is a back button a good idea for mobile?
I didn't mean the user would assume 'done' takes the user to the previous page. The user just knows they're done, so clicks 'done'. If that happens to go to where they came from all well and good, but maybe it just takes them to the next item (although to be honest swipe actions + cues might be better for sideways navigation)

"something easier to understand for non-native English speakers or people with a small vocabulary"?

Indeed - that's a different matter. Some clarification from @AlexD ?

comment How to best layout a table where one column has lots of text?
The web seems awash with read more/less buttons - some of which work much better than others.

comment Entering any two of four inter-dependent values
I'm glad someone mentioned direct manipulation. I'd considered this too, and while direct manipulation works great for the angle, my concern was catering for short and long slopes - eg a 1m long slope and a 100m long slope. Having said that - I think the interactive preview definitely seems important to guide the user as to the expected outcome.

comment Entering any two of four inter-dependent values
Assuming the calculated inputs won't really look disabled that sounds reasonable. The inputs will have some default values already entered, but it could still revert to the above as soon as the user changes any one of the default values. Also the user might come back to edit these values later and this mechanism could also let the user see which values they entered themselves and which ones were calculated. I'll run through some scenarios and see if this pans out. The preview will be a definite aid.
