Preview/Test of Redesigned Help Documentation

Recommended Posts

As posted before (a long time ago, it seems), http://forums.getpai...ebsite-updates/ , we've been working on a redesign of the help/documentation pages for Paint.NET. (Well, Matan has.)

Anyway we've got the almost final draft finished up and ready to test out:

We'll probably "go live" sometime within the next few days.

Maybe it's not up for discussion, but I find the advertisements embedded into the words (especially in the menus selections) rather obtrusive when I'm trying to click a link and then inadvertently pass my cursor over one of the ads. Other than that, it's very intuitive.

Advertising, Kontera in this case, helps cover costs and keep things free.

I think the page would be better if the translator wasn't with the actual content, and in the sidebar or something. Also, not liking the poor quality of the image in header, but i think you've done that to keep the file size down?

Its great overall though. Like Crimson said, very intuitive.

I find the Microsoft Translator box highly obtrusive and taking up vertical real estate.

Yup. The more I look at the translator's placement, the less I like it.

This.
