Wireframe Templates in Visio

Hello,

I have been actively following this group for months. Very good
resource.

I am interested in examples of using Visio as a tool beyond workflow
diagraming.

Does anyone have examples of using Visio as a tool for creating
wireframes? I currently use Illustrator for my wireframes - the big
downside to this application is the difficulty in multiple page
formatting for wireframes.

Thanks in advance for your advice and examples!

Re: [IxDA] How else can you say login and register

This is an unsubstantiated claim, and even if more apps use "login" than "log in," of which I'm far from convinced, the notion that users would be at a loss when encountering one rather than the other strikes me as silly.

Command line vs. menu driven interface

Katie Albers wrote in another thread:

"Let's take a really obvious example: Every test I've ever seen shows that
people are measurably faster using a mouse-based interface than a
command-based interface. At an extremely high level of expertise both in
typing and in the app, people do, in fact, become faster using the
commands... but "membership" in this group is much smaller than the number
of people who believe they are in the group.

Forms design - I'm researching and need help

Where are we on forms design today?

How far have we come on designing effective, intuitive, intelligent web forms? I'm researching forms design, both best practice and the more innovative ones. But I'm having a hard time finding really good examples.

Error messaging best practices

I'm looking for info on best practices / guidelines for error messaging
(for forms on the web)- both the content of the message and the way
errors are brought to the user's attention.

Does anyone know of any good sources? Or maybe just a site that has an
interesting solution?

Thanks,
