hyperlinks vs. buttons in dekstop applications


1 - I'm wondering if anyone has found any official guidelines (I've looked,
but haven't found) or developed any personal conventions for the use of
hyperlinks vs. button in desktop applications.

For instance, in my current application, we provide some links to external
websites. This seems like a no-brainer to display as a hyperlink. But it
becomes more ambiguous. We had a Search and I wanted to provide access to
Advanced Search... I could show this as either a button or a link.

But within Windows and Office applications, the use of hyperlinks is
becoming more prevalent.

Navigation examples: trees

I'd like to raise several issues I've seen with trees. Maybe they've
been solved and I just don't know it.

1. Tree widgets sometimes require MIE on Windows version 5.5+ which
makes them suitable for intranets but not for the Internet.

2. Tree widgets sometimes have such small click targets or labels
that they are difficult to operate from that standpoint. Sometimes
they don't respond to font-enlargement controls in the browser.

3. Technologists are more familiar with trees than end users, so some
people just don't know what to do with trees.

: Mac OS X (was How to Get Into ... Best Job Title)


I don't have the same glowing reaction to OS X that you do, although I
think I see it more positively than Andrei does. I'd like to respond to a
couple of your points. First let me say that I have been a Mac user since
1985 and have owned several Macs since 1987. I've had OS X at work for
about two years (Panther since about two weeks ago), and am still using OS
9 at home (my desktop is too old to run OS X, but I'm planning to buy a G5
before too long).

>The new Finder in Panther allows faster access to "important
>directories" than before.

What do you call this?

I do this--


--and it's been very useful.

The author calls it "wireframing," but everyone else in the world says that
a wireframe is a low-fidelity mockup.

Do other names exist for this sort of clickable, text-only, HTML

Photoshop, Illustrator & InDesign

Hi All,

Tool Question:

So I create my designs in Illustrator, my colleague in Photoshop. But we
both use (she plans to) InDesign to document our F&BS and U&DAs. As for the
F&BS, there is the writing, layout of the doc, and then there are the visual
design (screenshots). Do any of you use these tools to produce your docs?
And if you do, I'd like to ask how you solve the following problem.

I create the images, and paste them from Illustrator to InDesign. But then I
make changes to the native file.

IxD - Denver/Boulder Area?

Maybe the close proximity to mountain fun is too much of a distraction
for people, but there seems to be a disconnect between the size of the
Denver/Boulder area and the number of people actively involved in
IxD-related activities.

No HFES, no UPA... there used to be an AIGA local chapter, but that's
gone, as far as I can tell.

Anyone here from the Front Range area? I have a few ideas I'd like to
discuss with you.
