Centred Layout Vs Left Aligned

One of those old chestnuts that keeps rearing its head in discussion with client and/or the visual design team.

Left aligned (fixed width) sites are evil right? ;-)

Anyone got any evidence to the contrary?

Love to hear your thoughts.

Axure - Questions...and more questions

Thinking about using Axure for prototyping as there are many great benefits
from a documentation point of view.
However I am wondering about the learning curve and the ability to import
previously documented high level page structures (Visio)

Questions
1. What would be your estimate regarding the learning curve (timewise) to
becoming productive with Axure without feeling like you are blowing the
project timelines for deliverables?

2. Can you import Visio drawings into Axure?

3. My understanding is that Axure produces html code.

Tools for building a pattern library

What tool(s) did you use to set up your UI pattern library?

I know this question has been asked before*, but after repeated searches I'm not finding much of an answer. Seems there aren't any simple ways of doing this.

I'm currently using a mix of documents in collaboration with custom built (aka one-off) web-based solutions, but these aren't optimal for several reasons:

Difference between Heuristic Evaluation and Expert Review

Hi all,

In Heuristic evaluation, evaluator evaluates design with reference of
design principles to find out the usability issues.
How “Expert Review” is different from this? Is there any major
difference or it’s the same?

Thanks in advance.

design patterns for list sorting and filtering

Hi,

I'm working on a project where users will have potentially large lists
of items, sometimes personal collections, sometimes search results.
Each item in the list will have a number of fields, but not always
displayed in discreet columns, some of the data will be merged into
sentence form and some in shared columns.

I want users to be able to sort and filter the lists and I'm looking
for some good example of complex sort and filter interfaces. eBay was
a good starting point, but I'd like a few other examples.

Does anybody have any good live examples?

fluidIA: an open design + open source UI prototyping tool

Hello,

I am officially launching an open design / open source project with the
intention of creating an agile user interface prototyping tool - fluidIA.

I just setup a web site http://www.fluidia.org where I plan to post design
ideas and make the working code available. I also invite other interaction
designers and developers to join in and contribute by means of comments or
design submissions.

JJG's IA Summit 2009 Keynote

The longer that thread gets, the crankier I get, so I'm starting a new one
specifically to talk about Jesse James Garrett's talk at the IA Summit last
weekend. It's what he wanted us to do, anyway.

Changing role of user research in the UX design process?

During the Interactions 13 conference in Toronto, Paul Adams of Facebook advocated a radically different development cycle than the "ideal" user-centered one (qualitative user research first, then modelling and concept development, followed by prototyping, testing, and iteration).

Drop-down menus disadvantages?

Hi, I'm new to the IxDA list.

Do you know any good research highlighting the disadvantages of using
drop-downs?

At my company we're having a discussion whether we should stop using
them for our global navigation due to usability concerns.
