Symbol for Expand / Collapse


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 ▼
