I’d like to offer some feedback on the Glowforge app UI.
The “< back” arrow at the top of the Manual cut fly-out erases user settings and reverts them to their previous or default values.
If I click my art, and then click “Manual” and enter my cut settings, then click the “< back” element, my settings are lost. Since this is basically a show/hide element, it should not affect (or erase, especially) user input. As a new user, this has bit me several times.
The UI needs to offer users a forward path out of the tab. Currently the “< back” link is the only visible navigation, and it is silently acting as a cancel/revert button which is highly counter-intuitive. The only way to retain the settings is to click outside the tab or on the art thumbnail.
The “< back” arrow should not modify user input. And an OK button would be a better way to close the panel.
