Imagine you have a todo list, and you're currently editing the item marked
Task 1 Task 2 ** Task 3
The interface provides a command to immediately delete the current item (not just clearing the contents, but removing the entire item).
Should the focus (which item you're now currently editing) jump to the previous task, or the next task?
Example of jumping to previous task:
Task 1 item 2 is deleted Task 1 ** Task 2 ** ====> Task 3 Task 3
Example of jumping to next task:
Task 1 item 2 is deleted Task 1 Task 2 ** ====> Task 3 ** Task 3
What should be considered when making this decision? Are there any case studies on this behavior?
