We are trying to make the best possible use of every pixel of screen real estate in Notes 8. To that end, we are considering removing the + and - signs from the tree control that Samantha will see in the Navigator (app devs call it the outline view).
For example, do you think it's acceptable to have the following set of nested folders without a + to indicate which folders are nested?
(Note: We have tried the idea of superimposing a + on top of a folder that has nested folders but it appears there is a technical limitation where either all folders get the superimposed + or none of them do.)
Or, for usability reasons (that is, so that Samantha knows she has nested folders), shoudl we sacrifice the pixels necessary and show the + sign, like below?
I must admit that, while we like to save the pixels, for usability reasons, and for reasons of consistency with all the other outline views that samantha might be using in the client, we're inclined to keep the + signs.
How important is a plus sign?
