MyNameHere Posted January 6, 2005 Share Posted January 6, 2005 Hi, I know I've mentioned this before somewhere, but I searched around in the web forum and didn't find it -- maybe I commented on it in the newsgroups. The little check box nicely positioned just above all the individual message checkboxes is a very poor UI design, despite seeming very logical and aesthetically pleasing and all that. Several times, I have clicked on that sucker while trying to select the first message and then zipped over to Delete so fast I didn't realize what I had done until it was too late. And that's a bear to clean up. There are at least two solutions to this problem (short of making all users be slow and methodical and have better aim). I mention these in my order of preference: 1. The "check all" function could be a button or link in another location, like it used to be. 2. All the other functions could display a confirmation dialog if invoked while "check all" is checked. Thanks for considering this issue. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
