Re: Usability test.


Remember, you are only a newbie for a short time but will spend most of
your time as an experienced user. You want the tool to be powerful yet easy
enough to learn so that newbies don't give up before learning the tool.

You can do this with the ability to configure features so that you enable
more powerful features as you gain experience but the trade off there is
that any change requires testing a bazzillion different configurations. Not
easy to do with all volunteers.

There is also the issue that everyone has their own opinion as to what is
useful and what is not.

Case in point you mentioned that warp to center on zoom was "weird" and
that nobody else does it. gEDA also does it and it is really useful feature.
