1. Reduce Margins
2. Split buttons into groups
3. Reduce Min row height (could this be adjustable within a setting of
"look for" should at least be "Search" or "Search for"
Agree or Suggestion?:
a simple >magnifying glass search icon< for a "Search" button OR
- Simply selecting search parameters (or typing) automagically live
- Replace Search Button with an X button to clear search parameters
a simple >magnifying glass search icon with +< for advanced search
Onto a separate topic...
You must know your way around Designer.
I have been trying to figure out if it is possible to create an identity
window that allows direct editing within it.
I have only a couple hours after work to investigate, but between kids and
the need for sleep I don't make much progress! ^_^
Thanks for your UI design remake, It is an improvement, and if searching
can be activated LIVE then I agree a Search Button is really unnecessary.
