If you have particular concerns about the layout, feel free to voice
them, rather than dismissing all the work that's occurred before.
I am voicing them and proposing solutions (this was just the first attempt, maybe there are other options).
I know that doesn't look GNOMEy, or at least is not conformed to the other panels, but the more I watch them the more I believe there is a problem with this type of layout.
Here a list of issues which I can see:
- Horizontal alignment of the switches with the feature header: while the offset is there for hierarchical reasons, with the switch widget (with such straight lines) looks almost as a bug.
- The description of the feature is too far from the header: ideally should almost be between the header and the switch. As it is now looks like an introduction to the related options.
- Is not clear where "Turn on accessibility features from the keyboard" belongs
- On Screen Keyboard is a clearer header than Typing Assistant (which is too generic)
- The sliders are too wide: ergonomically speaking, they require too much pointer movement and that level of precision is not required (I didn't fix this in the quick mock up I did)
I understand that in your opinion this panel is done and finished, but I can't help to keep looking for ways how to improve things.
It would be nice to hear the opinion from other people.
