Re: “Collapse all” button on Pages / Forms / Write panels

Another possibility is to move the expand/collapse links below the Sort and display block.

Phil’s kindly mocked this up. Thoughts anyone?

Re: “Collapse all” button on Pages / Forms / Write panels

I like the mock up. Though as (I think) I’ve mentioned once or twice over the years, I’d like the sort & display to be collapsible as well. (I understand Phil’s rational on why he thinks it should always be visible. Even so, my preference is to collapsible it.)

I had a couple of thoughts when seeing the mock up:

  1. Related to the question – my thought was “what if we went with a slide out menu instead?” There are times I really prefer to just write. The idea of no screen space surrendered to settings has long been a desire of mine. With the new layout, a slide out settings menu would work well and achieve a win-win.
  2. Unrelated to the menu collapse: One of my first thoughts – what is view and how is it different from preview. I know, but had to think about it. It’s not intuitive.

A slide out menu would not work with what we have planned for the Write page in future (moveable fields).
