I am building a web application, and I am currently using Floating Action Buttons in the bottom right hand corner of certain predefined widgets to toggle between a main view and a settings view as indicated by their respective icon.
I have two dilemmas that I am now facing --
I want to add a main floating action button in the bottom right of the application to trigger the adding of dynamic widgets, and I fear that this would result in floating action button overkill if these exist on widgets too.
I could use a tab view inside the widget to switch between main and settings views, except that I am using this in the settings view inside each widget (example)
What would be the best way to switch views inside a widget without using a floating action button? Or on the contrary, what would be the best way to add a dynamic widget (preferably in accordance to material design specs) that is not a Floating Action Button?
