Instead of having the buttons that instruct you what to do, how about having a simple "copy to clipboard" button?
@Joe Godbee — I think that takes away the detail. I think its nice to give the user the instruction of what to do.
BUT I'M ON WINDOWZ
@James ✌ Ok, I understand. Let me play devils advocate here...What if I were on a PC? Just trying to help.
@Joe Godbee You won't get the pleasure of the detail :)
the problem is they are a tad too visible. and as such they might compete with the rest from visual pov. I would reduce opacity and draw them as simple forms with only a stroke around them. Far less visible and intruding. perhaps as a bg image of the edit field.
@Sorin Jurcut — I don't think the 400x300 grasps how it looks in the overall situation.
Brilliant, once again @James ✌
@James ✌ Not saying it does. But i have a good ideea about how it should look with that animation. Further more I imagine that's the only bit of animation you got on the entire element. That means that a good deal of the attention of the user will shift to that, because everything else is static. But don't take my word for it ! :)
@Sorin Jurcut Thanks for the feedback. However, this animation will only happen when the user hits CMD+C. So, the call-to-action text at the top, "Copy the link below..." will immediately make it recognisable that the link below is to be copied. Therefore, a user can simple drag and copy the text, or hit CMD+C.
So, making the CMD (Control) + C copying a little more fancy. Thats all :)
I'd go with the copy to clipboard icon or link.
Why would you make the users (specially users that don't use shortcuts) make the work themselves when you can provide a straightforward, platform-independent solution?
This is awesome @James ✌ :)
Personally I think @James ✌ has once again hit the nail on the head with the design
We here on Dribbble need to give in and make you a plaque - "God of #fff."
This looks great. But sometimes looking great gets in the way of being easy to use; I think you should consider the Copy button idea, like @Joe Godbee suggests.
