- Improved UX for mnemonic phrase backup
Backup to the desktop wallet is now similar to giving a mobile wallet. The result made the process simpler and more intuitive, making it easier for the end-user.
2. Input adjustment
Input fields are now formatted in thousands, in addition to decimal formatting (e.g. 1,000.00). This makes it clearer how much is actually being input.
In addition, the experience has become closer to ATM inputs, in order to allow only numbers and backspace/delete.
3. Improved responsive design
The layout has become more responsive to avoid the side menu above the content of the screens.
