filters for a profile search

Hey IxDAers,

I'm designing a site that enables law firms to search law student profiles
to find job candidates, and have have to build the interface attorneys will
use to search the student profiles. I'm struggling with how to start the
search. Most fields have set values (state, law school name, law degree,
field of practice, state licensed in), and it seems we'd kick it off with
filters. There are about 15 such fields to search by, and we've got the
primary filters list down to 5 (those stated above). other filters will be
progressively disclosed.

NASA "Orange Peel" Display

Hi All,

I'm working on a DARPA government project and I need to find an illustration of the NASA "Orange Peel" Heads Up display. I've Googled and can't find it. It's supposed to be the cutting edge method for communicating situational awareness with regards to aircraft orientation.

Anybody have any information on this?

Usability testing a build and supplementing it with paper mocks

I'm currently in the process of usability testing a build. The build
consists of a lot of functionality but some of those parts are not
connected to the main navigation. People can still access the
functionality but not from the correct places.

I'm considering providing the user tasks to complete and filling in
the missing flow pieces with paper mocks.

FW: Fitt's Law and such [was: Mac OS X...]

Correction 1:

I should say "heart of the ^^current implementation^^ of the dock-locked trash."

I can see a solution in actually anchoring the trash-targeted end of the dock. That plus always treating the zone of the fully
'natural-sized' trash as it's active zone (even if the visual extent is smaller) might remove the necessity for the extra subgoal.

The same accomodation is available for the desktop trash -- having extent that extends to the edge of the screen even if located a
short distance from it.

I'm sure there'll be a second correction.

Wireframes: Illustrator/Indesign question%u2026

One way I've gotten around this problem is to lay everything in
Illustrator out in a big spread, rather stacking content in layers. I
then place this file into multiple content boxes in InDesign, panning
and zooming to the appropriate locations.

Using Illustrator and InDesign together for design documentation is
often more trouble than it's worth, and I agree that you may want to
check out some other tool options. That said, I hope the solution I
mentioned is helpful!
