New instance of form different from editable form / avoid labels

Hi Everyone,

I'm designing an "ideal" transport incident management form and it occurred to me to make the "New Incident" form quite different from the "Editable Incident" form.

1. The Editable Incident form would display information entered into the New Incident form summarised in text format (rather than in the field format of the New Incident form) and thus use less space, allowing for more information to be displayed.

2. The Editable form would allow editing of single sections of the form and/or the entire form.

Annotations template (or UI components) for PowerPoint

I am in need of a template (or stencils) for a project that requires annotations to be done in PowerPoint. I would need UI components that would usually be part of a wireframe set that includes labels and notes.

Does anyone know where I can find one?

Forms design / labels inside the fields


In the company I'm working with a discussion has just been started;

TOPIC: Whether placing a labels inside the fields is a good idea or
not. This pattern is spreading recently (i.e. facebook) a lot.

Personally, I'm not supporting this idea for many reasons
(accessibility, patterns in an eye fixation on form elements etc).

Though, I'd like to avoid religious debate on this issue and follow
up with some objective studies and/or research.

Have you analyzed this issue before or seen some interesting
findings? User studies?

When Input is Output is Input

This is somewhat of a nit of a question, but a fellow designer and I
tossed it around and we decided we needed a little outside advice.

We are designing a revision of an internal development tool that
constructs applications that of course interact with people. The
question we have is about the terminology of a piece of the tool that
allows the developer to specify instructions that will be given to a
person and accepts responses back from that person.
