So I was thinking about issues which arise from using touch on the Slate. The most frequent issue I run into is clicking the wrong menu element, button or option. Then I thought about how other users and other OSes have handled this issue. Many people set their screen DPI in Windows 7 to 125%. This works really well until you run into the extreme volume of software which either a) uses their own font and button sizes or b) graphically breaks with higher font DPI. Then I looked at iOS and Android. Both simply use larger elements. It's like using a TV or gaming console UI (think XBMC). This is great for touch, but wastes the screen real estate for information display. What I have begun looking for is something which when I press on the screen, actually magnifies the area under my finger to larger size. Windows or N-trig's drivers do this to some degree, with the size of the ring which pops around when long pressing creates a right click action (it is smaller with the stylus). This helps, but does not increase the precision of the action, because I don't have an opportunity to see what is actually under the precise interpreted position of my finger. What would seem to be optimal would be a magnified view, displayed just above or to the left or right, of where the finger is pressing with a pointer indicator superimposed. The user could then choose either to release their finger on the element, or slide over to the magnified view and choose an element. Optionally, it could capture all long presses and allow the user to slide over to the magnified area, slide in another direction to indicate a right click, or release to single click where their finger already resides. Handling right clicks in the magnified view area might require some other gesture or a second finger. A second finger should also inherently function within the magnified area. I would guess N-trig would be the people to approach to see if this is something which could be rolled into N-Act, but I wanted to check if anyone here has run into anything remotely close. I don't think the Windows Magnifier gives anywhere near this kind of functionality, nor do I want a magnified portion always showing on screen. Also, I would like to get some feedback about my proposed ideas.
