Design Better Forms

For what it is worth, I’m not a fan of “Show all selection options if under 6” because this does not play well with i18n (internationalization) nor with user’s custom font-size as both can lead to broken layouts or truncated words.

Also, “Ditch the * and denote optional fields” requires authors to state first that all fields are required unless specified otherwise. Without doing this, some users may realize that “unmarked” fields are actually required only after they’ve encountered a “optional field.

Like what you read? Give Thierry a round of applause.

From a quick cheer to a standing ovation, clap to show how much you enjoyed this story.
