One large monitor (33"+) or two medium ones?
One large monitor will give you...

• Optimized desk space.
• Effortless cable management.
• Seamless view, no margin.
• Lower price (upon a smart buy).
• Neat setup looks.

Then, just use "magnetic" windows.

It's hard to describe how much I appreciate it when software companies take user feedback this seriously.

Here's to the fine indie software houses that run circles around the "big guys" in this regard.

(In this case, Flexibits, whose Fantastical calendar app is high up on my "can't-live-without-these-Mac-apps" list.)


An email from Flexibits Support. The subject line is "IxD Bug: Some popup menus do not open on mouse-down".

The email reads:

Hi Jochen,

I wanted to reach back out and let you know that our team has filed a bug report for the issue you reported so that they can look into getting that fixed.

I don't have a timeline for this currently, but we will update you when we have more information.

In the meantime, if there is anything else we can help with please let us know!

Thank you :)

I have a user interface suggestion for Mastodon.

Currently, the little box where you enter your toot text is on the left side of the screen. This means that the information from that little box goes into your left eye (mostly) and is transferred to the right hemisphere of your brain. The problem is that for most people language processing is in the left hemisphere, which means all that information has to cross the corpus callosum to get to the left side of the brain to get processed. For someone like me with dyslexia that really screws things up and causes me to drop words and makes it very difficult to use.

So my suggestion is to put the little box on the right hand side of the screen or in the middle, or give the user an option as to placement and size of that little box.

That's my suggestion.

(Sometimes I write stuff in a separate window using a word processor and then copy it over to the little box, but that is kind of tedious, especially for short, quick toots.)

Assume the Position—A Labelling Story By @lloydi

“Many aspects of web design have become de facto standards. In other words, it may not be that there was ever a hard-and-fast rule about how something should be laid out/designed, but has come about through years of repetition. Breaking away from such trends only causes usability problems, whether the de facto standard is actually the best approach or not; it’s all about familiarity”

Oh, for all the times that I’ve thrown away napkins and utensils from takeout food, or tediously (and often in vain) wrote in the order comment field not to include them…

I wish that literally every online food order platform had this simple toggle, and in exactly the right location like this one.

click button "Open Take" of dialog "Choose Take" (nope, error)
click first button of dialog 1 of front window (nope, error)

Wow. New Apple #VisionPro is a beautiful looking product and experience. Nice physical product design and UI too.

Great #UX highlights:
• Display shows you, and makes it visually obvious when you’re recording (Google Glass got this privacy aspect wrong)
• Minimal controls needed.
• Portable battery pack rather than needing to be hardwired all the time. Before long, this will be all integrated.

The Walt Disney Company partnership and immersive storytelling is very clever. Can’t wait to see it.

I am absolutely certain there's keyboard shortcut for changing #Youtube closed captions size, because I must have hit it by accident (since I did not, in fact, click into a sub-menu I didn't know was there to change the size to 50%) but I can't find any documentation on it, even in the well-hidden places where sparse & incomplete info on other shortcuts is found.

Because for some reason YT has decided to enable a host of hotkeys, then go out of their way to keep anyone from knowing them.

Also, feeling safe and like your privacy is respected is absolutely 100% a part of #UX.

Disrespecting and/or disregarding user #privacy is an insanely fast way to instantaneously decimate user experience for a large portion of your user base.

It also brings you a bunch of negative PR and repels a good deal of existing and prospective users essentially forever, no matter how good your product may be otherwise.

Respect user privacy.

You don't get to decide if you have good UX.

Your users do.

And if your users hate your product and can't figure out the interface and are absolutely miserable using every last part of what you created, your product sucks.

Stop thinking your vision is pristine, impeccable genius and acting like everyone who doesn't like it is somehow mentally inferior and should just learn and adapt to your delusions of greatness.

You are wrong. Stop for a bloody second and listen to your users.

I get choice breeds competition but it also makes for frustrating #UXDesign (I'm not asking for cable companies to come back!) But splintering my experience across 7 services has significant consumer drawbacks.

I don't know, maybe if they offered their catalog as an API (w/ billing) so a single service could unify them? Silly me, that's against late-stage capitalism where companies > people #UX
