Tiny Buttons

Posted in Fail with tags , , , on December 22, 2007 by dreadlorde

One thing I cannot stand about UI’s is ridiculously small buttons. Here is one example. If you’re going to have buttons that small, just hide your action bars. They are barely click-able, and there’s no way can can see keybindings that aren’t 1 – =. There are some UI’s outh there though that make good use of small buttons. One example is this UI. Zizek also made good use of small(er) buttons in his chimaine 5b remake. Other than those, and a few other minimalist UI’s (mostly chimaines’ and zizeks’), tiny buttons are bad. That’s all for now.

Cheers.
