#94 Improve design of JShelter options
Opened 3 months ago by polcak. Modified 3 months ago


The JShelter UX review (https://lists.nongnu.org/archive/html/js-shield/2023-01/pdfCi7H0vUsN_.pdf) identified several issues in the JShleter options.


[ ] Sliders don’t line up with the indicator text well. (Improved) Libor's note: I am not sure what exactly does not line up.
[ ] The button design seems idiosyncratic and a bit rough. It’s also inconsistent (rounded,
square, flat, beveled, raised, half-dropshadow).
[ ] Some word spacing is odd in the expanded sections, as if the text is fully justified, so words
are farther apart than normal. Libor's note: the text is justified, do we want to change that?
[ ] “Whitelist” is being used, even though it’s now preferred that these be “Allow list” / “Block
list” to avoid racial good/bad metaphors.
[ ] The help text (under the (?)s) is confusing and at a very high technical reading level. It’s
easy to decide that this tool is too complicated to use.
[ ] The help text refers to “use this level,” but there are no levels, only On and Off. Also, it’s not
clear what “this” refers to, the current state, or the state obtained if the instruction on the
button is followed. Libor's note: Yes there are levels like Recommended or Strict that are being described, the symbol (?) is located just at the side of the level. I am not sure what is confusing here and how to improve.
