Safari patches and no-refresh Innovation controls coming tomorrow!

Tablet resolution animated GIF feature demo!
On Thursday, I started working on the recently introduced usability and presentation issues affecting Safari users and realized that, rather than simply patching or working around the issues affecting the Settlement Sheet, it made more sense to just go ahead and totally overhaul the Innovations controls.

This afternoon (i.e. Saturday), I finally finished up the new Innovation controls and now the plan is to do a release of the Manager tomorrow morning that will include all of the Safari-specific presentation fixes that I failed to release last Tuesday as well as totally redesigned Innovation controls on the Settlement Sheet.

Check out the animated GIF demo at the right to get a sense of how it will work, but the big ideas behind the redesign are these:

  1. Adding or removing innovations updates the Innovation Deck without refreshing the page.
  2. Clicking/tapping the Innovation Deck refreshes it without refreshing.
The basic idea is that working with Settlement Sheet innovation controls no longer reloads/refreshes the page, no matter what you're trying to do.

And, like I said above, I will definitely release that feature tomorrow (i.e. Sunday) morning and, with any luck, that plus the Safari fixes will solve a lot of issues for a lot of people.

Thanks for using the Manager!
