Reply to: [TW] RE>Usability of tabbed dialogs
Re your question:
. . . One thing he is thinking of doing is, instead of
having one Options command with a huge number of tabs, having
several Options commands (e.g. Tool Options, View Options, and
so on), each with a smaller number of tabs. Seems to me that
would be somewhat more usable. What do you think?
I'd like that better. The Netscape Options menu scheme is a handy
way to give easy access to the major settings chunks. I find
myself liking it--both visually and functionally--every time I use it.
