Please Don't waste Space ....

Author: ulrichmerkel@web.de (ulrich-merkel)

The new link to the monthly webinar costs some felt third of my screen. All the "normal" contents suffer from this squeeze. Please have in mind that most of us are used to see the important infos on a single no-scroll screen. It would be nice if links could keep their position on the top of the screen.

  1. Good morning Uli, I've noticed the banner has now been moved to the very bottom of the page, fitting in with the site responsive design. Cheers, Arjen

  2. Hi Arjen, since a couple of days when I open the browswer on my notebook, a complete new column on the right hand side wastes my screen space with only a link to http://go.uniface.com/getting-started "Join Us for our Monthly Webinar. I think it is much better placed right of the wishlists, where there is already some unused space.

  3. ..and now it has moved to the right again, and stays there even on smaller screen sizes, which indeed takes up valuable space, especially on smaller viewports :-( I understand your point, and I have to agree, also to your suggestion to move it right of the Wishlist. I hope this will get picked up by those who can do something about it :-)

  5. Thanks for returning back to the 3-column layout. Now I can read that in the survey 84% use shared repository in an acceptable font.

  6. BTW:   on http://www.uniface.com/ There is on the righthand side in the middle a "Uniface,we are hiring" which overlays the text of the real page. On http://www.uniface.com/uniface10/, the text is overlayed (and therefore unreadable) by a "Download a trial".   On both, I found no way to hide these links so I can read the text I am really interested in (apart from zooming to 80% which makes it harder to read).   From a usability point, I think this needs to be improved; perhaps by a non-modal link which the user can close ??

  7. on the internet, in a lot of cases there is either: a "close" option for this overlay so its away or a button to "move the sidebar out of sight" with a small button to bring it back. In both ways, it's pretty easy to read the original text without scrolling around the "blind spot".

  8. Great, you did it agin: instead of using empty space next to the wishlist for your link (see post 1), you wasted again 25% of my screen with just nothing important. It's transmitting the impression that there is no professional layout at all.
