Place of [Enchant] button very unintuitive.

Ark Evensong


Perhaps not an actual bug, but I consider it an issue, anyway.

(And again, maybe already known, but  ... 25+ pages.)


[Description of the issue]


Place of [Enchant] button on Item Information pop-up window very unintuitive.



[DETAILED list of steps to reproduce the issue AND what to look for]


Start a new game, open inventory and right-click on a weapon or armor.

(See Screenshot)



-Notice how there's a button is placed in the bottom middle of the popped up information window.

Try to close the window. - Instead of clicking outside the window, automatically click the button at the bottom.

-Notice you're now in the Enchant Menu, instead of back in your inventory.


[Expected behaviour]


... There is a single, centered button placed at the bottom of a window.

20(+?) years of PC use has trained me to see this as an "Okay/Acknowledged/Dismissed" button. I know I can't be the only one. I don't care that it says "Enchant", the Expected Behaviour of a button placed in that location is to close that window, especially in the absence of an actual [x] in the upper right corner.


Maybe add an actual "Close" button, and place 'em side by side at the bottom?


[Other remarks / Comments]


Eh, I might get used to it after clicking it inadvertently another 100 times or so... Heh. Deprogramming is hard.

Hello Ark Evensong,


The UI for item descriptions has actually already been redesigned in our current builds. It has been changed to include an [X] in the upper right hand corner and the enchant button is now far less awkward and misdirecting. 


Hopefully this found to be a more pleasant look as it is released in the next backer update.


Thank you for your support!  :sorcerer:
