I have a UX issue which would be simpler to solve if I had to buttons next to each other in the navbar for a mobile device.
In the images below I'm referring to the buttons marked 1 and 2. 2 Will in practice be a dropdown to handle additional options.
An additional question is that if it is workable, should the buttons be completely separate (lower chance of hitting the wrong button) or linked (visually simpler)?
Good / bad idea? Does anyone have any experience with this either working or failing?
The alternative seems to be having a single dropdown, but button 1 will be used fairly often, so putting it behind a menu seems like a bad idea. Or is it?
Note: This question is related to some suggestions I received in another topic
