I did a pass with the clear button style...(I'm wondering if it looks
disabled the way the selected column header looks disabled? Mostly
because the buttons are on a white background? I can try something in
between the clear and the dark grey.)
+ RE: 'Make-the-suggested-option-blue'. Does that convention apply to
the text or the button? Or in our case, would it be apply the grey to
the 'suggested option'?
+ We should also discuss the type treatment for the product name.
Agree on a font and layout style that will work on the wiki, landing
page and desktop splashscreen.
+ Header style
+ Subscribe with... pulldown. Should it say Subscribe with Chandler
Desktop? Because not all options in that pulldown are subscription
options? There are also the download .ics file options?
+ Visual syntax, font sizes and font colors.
- Creating / Adding new items to the collection.
- Username versus ID
+ Capitalization scheme
- Attribute names, "Username" versus "User Name" versus "User name"
+ First order UI elements: What needs to pop, etc... Proposed scheme:
- Stuff users need to see immediately, whether or not they're looking
- Stuff users need to be find easily when looking for them
- Stuff users can find on their own time
Thx! Mimi :o)
