I'm currently designing a device that includes a knob with two types of
- turn to increment value
- push to accept value
The proposed labelling is at present:
Tune <above the knob>
Push - Ent <below the knob>
My question: does anyone know of a good icon to represent the 'push'
action, or a combo icon that represents turn and push?
Any other ideas that you might have for labelling are also welcome.
This might be a start:
Also, perhaps putting Tune above the knob with arrows pointing in either
direction and putting "Enter" on the face of the knob itself. This fits
better in the model of 'direct manipulation.'

You might look on the tops of "child-proof" (really human-proof)
medicine bottles. Those require both turning and pushing to open, so
there might be some clever solutions there to draw on.
