I'm pretty stuck with this one: I have an explicit 'print' button but we also need to allow users to select the language in which they want the form to be printed. Adding a dropdown next to it before the button feels quite weird. Appreciate your help.

  • A dropdown next to the button sounds perfectly reasonable and intuitive to me. If there is a sensible default, you could have a split button with that as the primary action.

In the app I'm working on, we're introducing a "combo button" that defaults to one command, but, when the arrow is clicked, offers other commands.

The app uses a small "Actions" button that pops up a little panel with commands in it. Functionally similar to the combo button, just visually different.

  • Just wanted to make sure. I sometimes feel things look weird when in fact it's just me being weird. Thanks guys.
