The new navigation drawer is great. Thanks so much for all the work on this and all the sub-menus.
When a Table of Contents is being used in an app, the “Hamburger”/Menu icon is only visible when you are at the Table of Contents top level screen. If you are at a content page/screen, there is no Hamburger/Menu icon visible. I just realized you can slide the Navigation drawer in from the side but some users wouldn’t realize this. Below is a screenshot showing this.
This isn’t a huge deal but something to look at for next update or when updates to the Table of Contents feature are made.
This definitely needs to be fixed.
In SAB 4.6 onwards, we have added a Navigation Type setting to the Contents Settings tab: you can choose for the app to show either an arrow or a menu (hamburger) button after the user selects from the contents menu.
Which option do you choose?
- If users are likely to make heavy use of the Contents menu to go back and forth between books, I suggest you use the arrow.
- If the Contents menu is a helpful front screen to introduce users to content sections, but not something they will be using for navigation much of the time, use the hamburger icon. There is a contents home item at the top of the navigation drawer menu.
