#1027 closed defect (fixed)

Memorize UI issues

Reported by: CarolineM Owned by: erikos
Priority: High Milestone: Unspecified
Component: Memorize Version: Unspecified
Severity: Unspecified Keywords: GPA, 12.1.0
Cc: gregorio, Eben Distribution/OS: Unspecified
Bug Status: New

Description

From the GPA School work.

  • When I create a new game the cards do not have 1 and 2 on the back.
  • When I edit a game then switch to the play window I am playing the old version of the game not my new edits. I think if you are making a game that should be what is active in Play.
  • Does it autosave as I create a new game?
  • The lips and eye icons need hover helper text

Please don't put several items in one bug. And differ between enhancement and defect.

Hi Simon,

I don't think I can edit the description to break this apart.

Let's focus on one item in this bug ID:

  • When I edit a game then switch to the play window I am playing the old version of the game not my new edits. I think if you are making a game that should be what is active in Play.

If we can get any traction on it I will file new bugs for the others too.

OK?

I think the description above is a bug not a feature. Let me know if you disagree and we can change the Type. Also, let me know if that is enough information to reproduce this and resolve it.

Any suggestion on who we can assign it to?

BTW I also added keyword GPA. I'll send a note to the full list explaining that is how I will track Gardner Pilot School issues. Hopefully not too controversial.

Thanks,

Greg S

I looked into the issue already last night. But have not found the optimal solution for it, yet. I can take this one.

@Greg, it is #1032.

@caroline:

  • When I create a new game the cards do not have 1 and 2 on the back.
  • did you see the options in the create toolbar at the top? the paired option?
  • Does it autosave as I create a new game?

Nope, maybe it should. But we can create more then one game. Maybe the kid would need to create another activity instance for creating a new game? Sounds a bit strange to me as well. In my class - I did not have an issue about that.

  • The lips and eye icons need hover helper text
  • hover ites is not something we use in the UI at all afaik. Maybe Eben can comment what he thinks.

  • When I create a new game the cards do not have 1 and 2 on the back.
  • did you see the options in the create toolbar at the top? the paired option?

no I did not see it. Even after this comment I didn't see it. Finally I got curious what the 4 cards up there were for so I clicked. THEN I saw 1 2 1 2 and got it. Until then I had not clue.

Maybe an easy fix is default to having that turned on then a user can click if they want to turn it off. The example has it turned on so my expectation was they should be there.

  • Does it autosave as I create a new game?

Nope, maybe it should. But we can create more then one game. Maybe the kid would need to create another activity instance for creating a new game? Sounds a bit strange to me as well. In my class - I did not have an issue about that.

I guess my question really is. If I shutdown my computer, or the power dies on it, and I've created a couple of pairs in a new game, will they still be there when I log in again?

I click create tab.
I create a pair.
I save the pair. - at this point I would think it would be in my journal and unlosable.
I create a new pair and save the pair. I think at this point i'd want the version in my journal updated.

Now I click play. I think I'd expect to play the game I was just creating.

Now I click the create tab again. I;d expect to be able to continue adding pairs.

I noticed some kids were quick to delete pairs rather then edit them. It woudl be nice if the kid who clicks delete delete delete in the pairs then changes his mind can find a version in the journal with all his pairs in it.

The whole saving thing is tough. I'm not at all sure I have it right.

  • The lips and eye icons need hover helper text
  • hover its is not something we use in the UI at all afaik. Maybe Eben can comment what he thinks.

I don;t know what the right solution is. I'm just reporting that its just not obvious what the eye and the lips mean to the kids on day 1. Don't most things in Sugar pop up some text when you hover over them?

UI is not my strong point, so please pay much more attention to my problem reports then my attempts at making solution suggestions.

Thanks!

  • Resolution set to fixed
  • Status changed from new to closed

In Memorize 41 (and in all the last versions with the new toolbar) the cards in the edit and play mode are the same, and are auto saved. The other minor issues were fixed before.
