Dropdowns

Synonyms: 
drop-down list, drop-down menu, drop menu, pull-down list, picklist

Is a control element that allows the user to choose a value from a list. Dropdown-menu displays a single value when inactive and a list of values when it’s activated.

VR menu interaction pattern by Oleg Frolov
Speaking of where you could use such types of patterns, it depends. UI elements are just a tool to design experience. So, there are no wrong or right tools. Some things work in one place and don't work in another. As a designer, you need to rely on context and common sense. Don't try to hammer in a nail with a screwdriver. Use a hammer.‍

Dropdowns are huge. Since 1974 this tiny element helps us in it’s laconic way to pick and choose. But there is a problem of relevance. In SXSW Keynote 2016’ Eric Campbell & Golden Krishna dropped their hilarious lection called «You know what? F**k dropdowns» wherein in a humorous way shows the pastness and illustrates the pain points of dropdowns.

Here is a long list:

  1. Difficult to access the list length
  2. Takes up a lot of space on mobile
  3. Forces options you might not want 
  4. Degrades to awful «other» choice 
  5. Can’t use keyboard on mobile to search 
  6. Can’t type custom responses
  7. Can’t be sorted unpredictably 
  8. Can take up whole screen on desktop
  9. Can encourage endless options 
  10. Desired options can be far away 
  11. Short responses can be typed faster 
  12. Can be a useless reminder of choices
  13.  Breaks down with dynamic content 
  14. Degrates brand experience
  15. Archaic UI element
  16. Pervasive «Country» dropdowns are often unnecessary 
  17. Desired option might be missing
  18. Can make your company look unsophisticated
  19. Indentations are difficult to navigate
  20. Categorisation can create more confusion
  21. «Title» field is usually superfluous 
  22. All choices in database, not most common selections
  23. Makes you feel like a machine
  24. «0» option is inelegant
  25. Error-validation for correlation fields fails
  26. There’s no reason to remind someone of the month of the year 
  27. No one needs help remembering their birth year
  28. Sorting is rarely done by most common options
  29. Long text can get cut off after selection 
  30. Awful ways to navigate 
  31. Put’s people into possibly offensive buckets
  32. No one needs a drop down for their age
  33. «Security question» drop down can be deflating 
  34. A list of options for «phone type» is unnecessary 
  35. Without labels, can be unpredictable

FAQs

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
