Gallery Usability Note

The Gallery Tab in the visual editor popup (Media Button) is hard to use when you're not that well with using the mouse.

Most often it displays a scroll-bar when an image entry is extended. That scrollbar is on the right of the thickbox/popup. When you then need to scroll it down you must press the mouse button down to grab it. But if you do not aim properly you might place the mouse right-next to the scrollbar. By only pressing the button down (not a full click already) the thickbox will disappear (it's the dark "outside" area that triggers this).

It's probably better to not remove it on mouse down, but by a real click.

The user experience for media will be revisited in future and keeping individual tickets open for specific issues isn't helpful for now so closing this ticket.

Changes to the UI and UX will happen based on prototyping and testing with a large corpus of users as well as inviting usability experts to contribute.

Note: See TracTickets for help on using tickets.
