Notes From Nature Talk

mycological collection interface/UX issues

  • tharkibo by tharkibo

    Firstly, the "click and drag a square around the specimen label" isn't even necessary most of the time and should be optional. Secondly, it doesn't work - the area selected is arbitrarily cropped which makes it difficult to make a proper selection for a label that happens to fit the arbitrary aspect ratio, and impossible for anything that doesn't fit the aspect ratio.

    Recommend disabling this tool entirely until it can be re-worked to either allow for different aspect ratios or for multiple selections per record.

    But really why bother when this could just be a zoom tool?

    gotta agree there, some labels ive ended up using a notepad and just randomly zooming to get to the entry page, even a disconnect between the 2 would be useful
