crane 38 Posted February 27, 2008 Share Posted February 27, 2008 Just a few things that are annoying/off about the web version: 1. The default view keeps resetting, i.e., every time I log back in, all the headings are closed, the dividing line between the left and right panel is too far to the left (meaning that I can't see the numbers beside tags, or even full tag names), etc. 2. Speaking of logging in, I can't get EN3b to "remember" me. I'm using Firefox. I've tried letting firefox remember the password, not remember the password, and I've clicked many times on that "remember me" box, but every time I come back (well, at least once a day), I have to put in my username/password again. Does anybody have the remember me working? 3. I've already addressed the fact that the notebooks/tags/saved searches don't sort the same way that they do on the desktop version (see viewtopic.php?f=30&t=5584#p20146 ) 4. The note list view is ugly. I find it really hard to look at with the date/time scrunched on top of each other. In addition, it's missing the newly important "Notebook" column that is useful in the desktop version. 5. My process seems to be this: look through notebooks, tags, etc. See everything in thumbnail view. Select one note, and click on it. It becomes the one note showing in the page. 5.a. First of all, I'd love a way to be able to edit the note in this view, instead of having to click twice to get to editing (click once on Note Operations, click again on edit.) 5.b. More annoyingly, after I've clicked twice and go into the editing....when I finish editing, and click done, the view doesn't switch back to the view with the one note, but rather back to the thumbnail view. So I cannot gaze adoringly on my newly edited note. (Or, even move to the next note in the list that I was working on. Notice that when you look at a single note, you can see a previous/next count. What's the point of having that if I can't edit a note, and then use those buttons to move to the next note?) See image: 6. Also, when editing a note, it would be really really nice if there were a shortcut key to say "done", instead of having to mouse over to the done button. I envision using the Ctrl+Enter to indicate Done. 7. I think the Note Operations drop-down menu is completely annoying. Never mind the fact that 1000+ tags, all sorted alphabetically in there is going to become extremely tedious. But there are operations in that list that could be better served by having their own buttons. There's a lot of wasted space in that header area. See the current layout in EN3: Now look at some other web application, e.g., gmail: I could see using some of the wasted space for separate buttons, e.g., have a separate (one-click) button for each of "edit", "delete", "email". Then, I would have two drop down boxes, one for "adding/removing tag", and one for "moving to another notebook". I'm not up on my UI design anymore, but I think it's bad form to jam too much functionality into one button. 8. And another thing about the Note Operations drop down list, there's no reason that it should look enabled if I can't use it. For instance, in the image below, I'm in the thumbnail view. I can't *do* any note operations, because I don't have a note selected, but I can still see that (did I mention ugly) drop-down box. But I can't click on it. How annoying. And yes, I realize that there is actually a subtle difference in the appearance when that drop-down is enabled or not. After looking more carefully, I can see that if there's a hint of grey, it's not enabled. But that's pretty subtle. Anyway, I think if a control is not usable, it should not be seen. After all, you're able to hide the next/previous in this view, why not the drop-down as well? 9. While wandering through the web interface, I've had the view reset itself every now and then, e.g., kick me out of the notebook/tag intersection that I was looking and. I don't know what's triggering it. Some kind of reloading? 10. Last annoyance. Minor one, but I'd like to be able to print a note from the web view. Given that I think the point of the web view is so that we can access or information from anywhere, I can see being at somebody's place, and wanting to give them a recipe I found. I can see finding it, and then just wanting to print it out. No joy here. No way to print just the note. I tried print from FF itself, but it spends most of the page on the left frame. Not Annoyances 1. I find I'm starting to really like the thumbnail view, especially for notes that have images in them, like my book collection. Link to comment
