mrdna, thanks a lot for your long explanation – I hope we’re getting closer to it, but still there are things we just don’t grasp.
:geek: :geek: :ugeek:
Let me summarize what I understood so far:
- * you mostly use Tabbles as some kind of file/urls related mind-mapping tool
- * in the "desktop window" you arrange the tabbles manually using the free-hand mode (not the auto-arrange tools) in order to do some kind of clustering.
How correct is this? I know it seems like I’m acting like a shrink, but explaining (and therefore understanding) one’s "user experience" is everything but easy. Thanks again for spending all this time on this 🙂
Our issues while shifting the new GUI are mostly that:
- * we still like the zoom/pan GUI, but we realized that most people just don’t get it (and we’re not Apple so we can’t hope we’ll convince them that it’s "beautiful and magical").
- * the whole clustering/mind mapping/desktop idea, is not at all something we did throw away: what we’re trying to do is focusing on something that anyone can understand and have a direct benefit from, and leave for a later moment some other more audacious experiments…
ok… not sure why I wrote that, but I guess trying to explain yourself is never a bad thing
