I think that’s a good idea.
- Simple tap to have an overview with presets and the slider.
- Long-press to have a dialog to manage the presets.
I think the ‘selection’ dialog should have an ‘Add/Edit* presets’ button (bottom-left) to open the ‘manage’ dialog (* depending on whether there are any or not).
Also pondered if (in addition) we might
- display the selection dialog if there’s no presets (allowing users to use the slider)
- simply toggle if there’s one or two presets
- display the selection dialog if there’s three or more presets
But that might just create extra confusion.
Don’t worry. Simplicity is in our ‘charter’, so it’s kept in mind (even if in this case we opt for another than your preferred solution). And we’re listening to your feedback here, having a good discussion with an exchange of arguments.
The user test that @ByteHamster did was neither with advanced users, neither did it involve ‘complex use-cases’. Still it stressed people out.
I’m still not sure how tapping in a dialog is ‘more difficult’ than tapping an x number of times. How many presets do you have exactly? And what makes it more ‘difficult’? Is it that you have to be precise with your finger movement because of the risk of accidentally deleting the preset?
This sounds like a setting to determine which settings are displayed. Introducing that will open a Pandora’s box with requests to add new possible settings which could all be included in the settings list, because it doesn’t matter if that list gets mega-long. I think that falls outside of the ‘simple but feature packed’ grey zone (on the ‘too complicated’ end of the spectrum).
