I was curious about anyone research or testing on labels for
buttons/links that return the user from an action screen. Let's say a
screen to update their information.
1) What is the preferred label? A label which denotes what the link will
do (go back where you came from) or a label that matches what the user
wants to do ("I want to cancel what I had chosen to do")
2) Should they look similar?
I need some suggestions on icons for a reset button. The button
de-selects all selected items located on a map. The problem, though, is
that the button must contain a 16x16 px image due to constraints on the
toolbar control itself, otherwise we would simply use a text button that
says "Reset." We need something that will be fairly recognizable since
our general user will have limited computer experience and rarely more
than a High school level education. We've been racking our brains over
here, so any help will be greatly appreciated.
