Something very interesting happened following the last post about potentially introducing a command line to AutoCAD WS.
I presented four options about the placement of a command line in AutoCAD and then posted a poll where you could choose which one you liked best.
We got a few comments both on the blog post and on our Facebook page. The comments were unanimously in favor of us reproducing the existing and comfortingly familiar command line. But then when we looked at the poll results we fund something entirely different.
A clear majority (55%) of people who voted in the poll, chose the widget as their preferred representation of the command line. The existing version was back in third place with only 19% of the votes.
So we thought we would try to compare a couple of different versions of the widget, each with a different look and feel, and get your opinion on them.
