Thoughts on the above UI:

  • Did you know you can click on the word "Text" to switch to other types of export? Neither did I!
  • All those little blue buttons...I'm not sure what exactly they do, and in order to find out I have to sit over them for a frustratingly long time waiting for the "tool tips" to appear.

You know what would have been nice here? A full-blown dialog box which actually makes optimal use of my laptop screen, makes each function clear, and maybe comes with keyboard shortcuts of its own.

Instead, the design direction seems to have been (in this and many other cases) to ape the iOS version of the app to try and keep them identical.
