comment how to make compact UI for lists
The toolbox (accordion) menu is better than just stacking lists imo.

comment What is the difference between a UX Designer and a Product Manager?
@DA01, A project manager falls somewhere between the product manager and ux designer. A product is typically made up of several projects. The product manager handles how all these projects come together, or build upon one another.

comment Guiding the user through your page
It looks like this page is being redesigned based on something I had suggested when I got the initial design. In short, instead of a hierarchical listing, they will get a grid, to select their store/shop combinations. They then hit next, and get a list of only what they have selected to alter, this gives them an opportunity to verify their selections. This second page, also has the date selection on it, so they can enter the values, and save. It guides, but in a manner that makes more sense, and should speed up data-entry.

That only works if they have a mobile that does horizontal.

comment Are there any studies on which keyboard keys get pressed the most?
The problem is, on a laptop, arrows (keyboard) tend to be faster and easier to use than a mouse. Unfortunately, since the average user doesn't know the shortcuts, they use the mouse. And the manufacturers design for the average user.

comment Are there any studies on which keyboard keys get pressed the most?
I WISH my arrow keys were nicely in the corner like that on my laptop. Instead, they are jammed in between the keys, and a numpad, however, they aren't full size keys, making them even harder to push. AND the newer laptops that re-use the F keys for other purposes (volume, brightness, etc), and require you to push the fn key to use the F keys.
