In recent UI design, the symbols used to indicate the presence of a child node(s) and to expand and collapse the node have been changing from ＋ and － to a right facing and down facing triangle (► ▼) . Currently, Dynalist is still using ＋ and －. Earlier this year, Workflowy made this change, which also allowed them to use mouseover on a new line ＋ symbol to create a new node.
This change was proposed and discussed in this thread.
Would you be in favour of retaining the existing symbols or changing to triangles?
- Retain current symbols ＋ and －
- Change to proposed symbols ► and ▼
