Topic: Display Differences On Different Devices
As I try to write comprehensive guides for my users I have discovered that some screens can vary significantly on different devices. While some of this can be applauded as a way of making screens more usable on different sized devices, other differences me cause me problems.
For example, what image should I use to illustrate the "Select Date Button" on the Navigation Bar?
On my phone it shows "17" with a heading "July" on a blue background. On my tablet the same button appears as a month grid headed "May" on a green background. While on my Desktop it shows "21" (in a different format to my phone) with a heading "Mar" on a red background.
Similarly with the the "Previous" and "Next" buttons on the "View Bar" (as I call the one under the "Navigation Bar")
They show as dark arrowheads on both phone and desktop, while on my Tablet they show awkwardly slightly high on the bar as square buttons with a graduated blue tint containing white arrowheads.
Could the next release do away with such cosmetic differences in the standard product? (But by all means provide the differing images as resources which can be added to a user's own installation.)
