Examples:
1. 在用户界面的上下文中要得到一个不对称的设计不容易,因为屏幕大小的限制,很难有空白,这时可以采用眯眼测试来观察布局是否倾向一方。
Asymmetrical design is difficult to achieve in the context of user interfaces because of the high premium placed on white space by screen real-estate constraints. The squint test is again useful for seeing whether a display looks lopsided.
2. 如果用户左右拖动某栏,就意味着他将该栏作为一个单元重新定位;如果用户上下拖动某栏,则将该栏的值插入到另一栏。
If a user dragged the column left or right, it meant that he was repositioning the column as a unit. If the user dragged the column up or down, it meant that he was interspersing the values of one column with the values of another.
3. 这些对象没有内在的次序,因此在上下文中连续选择没有意义,每个对象都是离散选择。
In some cases, a user will want to perform a contiguous selection on objects that are close to each other, and in other cases, she will want to select a single object.
4. 像菜单一样,我们可以单击箭头并保持在箭头上下拉,然后移动到所需的图标按钮上再释放,这样触发了这个图标按钮。
Like menus, the butcons should also activate if the user clicks and holds on the arrow, drags and then releases over the desired selection.
5. 在文档中单纯向上或单纯向下滚屏要比上下滚屏简单。
Scrolling down or up in a document is generally much easier than scrolling down and up in a document.
6. 一些滚动条在两端重复设置上下箭头,这样对于可能超出大部分屏幕的文本视图是有帮助的;对于小一些的窗口,这种控件的重复可能有损害,陡然增加了屏幕的混乱(关于这种习惯用法的更多讨论请参见第19章及其中的图19-1)。
Some scrollbars replicate both their up and down nudge arrows at each end of the scrollbar; for windows that will likely stretch across most of the screen, this can be helpful; for smaller windows, such replication of controls is probably overkill and simply adds to screen clutter (see Chapter 19 and Figure 19-1 for more discussion of this idiom).
7. 听起来可能会不以为然,除非你在具体的上下文中体会到它。
That doesn’t sound remarkable until you examine it in context.
8. 应用程序在框中以离散的文本行形式显示对象,可以通过滚动条上下移动。
The application displays objects as discrete lines of text in the box, and the scrollbar moves them up or down.
9. 比方说,鼠标上下移动变换成沿一个轴向上的移动,而45度角的拖动常用于表示另一个轴上的运动。
Typically, up and down mouse movements translate into movement along one axis, whereas 45-degree-angle drags are used for each of the other two axes.
10. 只有从上下文中来了解,或者你有意识地学过。
You can only learn this from context in something you read or by being consciously taught it.
