PostSubject: Fonts, styles, types and sizes UI Issues   Tue Apr 13, 2010 1:55 pm

Hi,

Some of these might be nitpicky, but they have been slightly bugging me... and they should give you something to do whilst thinking about how to code other things when stalled. It might be worth printing out screenshots of each page in b&w and comparing (8 pages for tv, and 9 for movies, plus all the preference pages). I haven't found all errors, some are left as an exercise for the coder ... :-) and my head was about to explode.


Font styles, types and sizes.

Globally there is a mix of Serif and San Serif fonts, not a big deal but should really be limited. Ensure there is global consistency across all pages of similar elements. Standardise on one Font, two or three sizes dependent on their display purpose. eg., labels are always right justified, without colon, and serif. Results are shown in a box so colons are not really required.

In the General Preferences tab change the Font size and font to Segoe UI, 9 or 10 pt to show more clearly the differences.

The serif font used in the TV show main browser is of a different size to that of the Movies Main browser, and a different font to preferred font. A different size to that of the preferred font is expected, but not between tabs.

In the Movies tab
There are different sizes and styles for the filter label and buttons, and for the Genre filter (change both buttons and genre labels to the same font and size?)

All labels above the images are right justified, serif with a colon
all those below are left justified with a colon and serif.
contents of rating and download trailer button, and watched toggle are serif. Also the unwatched label is practically unreadable against the red and small size of the button.

File details tab:
Font is sans-serif, variable width, not preferred (?)
Complete name : <path><file>
File size : size 0.00 Byte (should be 0 byte, you can't have a 0.3 byte file)
You can only use fixed spacing and or tab spacing with fixed width fonts, variable width ends up all over the place.

Change Movie tab
Lower case "all the correct movie and click go" its a dialog not a label.

In the TV Shows tab there are
2 different sizes for the show and episodes count. Shouldn't really need to be different as the box containing the count is a visual differentiator.
1 size looks the same as for the filter.

At show Level
underneath Plot the labels Runtime, Premiered, TVDB, IMDB, Studio, Rating, Genre, and Cert are serif, contents are preferred font, apart from IMDB which is serif.
Actor and Role labels are serif.

At Season Level
underneath Plot the labels Runtime, Premiered, TVDB, IMDB, Studio, Rating, Genre, and Cert are serif, contents are preferred font, apart from IMDB which is serif.
Actor and Role labels are serif.

At episode level
all labels are Serif, apart from Filename and Path which are sans-serif

Fanart
if a fanart image doesn't exist then "No Fanart Was Found at TVDB For This Movie" is displayed scrolling off to the side, change to "No fanart image was found at TVDB for %TVSHOWTITLE%", and center justify over multiple lines if it is required.

Change all of the "To Change ..." dialog to lowercase except "To .." and Save Selected.


TV Show Selector:
The TV Show Search... is a sentence and should be lowercase apart from the initial T. Necessary has one C and two S
"The TV show search will be based on the text entry below. Edit if necessary and click Search. "
Beneath the banner image Correct should be lowercase.
Button lower case all, apart from Scrape(?)

Folders:
folder buttons have various word capitalisations.


Mark, who is now going to hide...
