suggesting a change to the Export Setup dialog in Report Viewer.
current dialog, the user is shown an Image Quality selector, which is a
numeric list with options of 1 through 10. Beside that is the label
several problems with this:
- For the user to understand that the
options are 1 through 10 they are required to move through the spinner in
both directions. A dropdown list would be more intuitive.
- The label "dpi" has no meaning
in the context of 1 through 10. If the user is supposed to select a
DPI value, then the dropdown values should be for example, 150, 300, 600,
1200. "2 DPI" or "5DPI" doesn't mean anything
even to educated users.
- If the user is supposed to select 1-10
as the output quality, there should be some guidance here for making a
choice. For example instead of simply 1 the choice might be "1
- Draft Quality". Some users will figure out that 1 is probably
Draft, 5 is Middle Quality, and 10 is best. But a user who is not
technically savvy will not understand this.
suggestions would be either:
- Three option buttons to indicate, Draft,
Standard, or Best quality, with Standard as the default selection.
- A dropdown list with a few standard DPI
values such as 150, 300, or 600, with 300 as the pre-selected value.
users will only get confused if more than three choices are presented, and the
use case does not require more than low-middle-best quality choices in my opinion.
this is useful feedback.
