GeneralLightweight vs Classic View in the MSDN Library PinmemberRob Grainger14-Feb-13 1:39 
Am I just being reactionary, or is the switch over from Classic view to Lightweight view a step backwards?
 
1. In Classic View, the Content Tree remains accessible at all times. In Lightweight view, I have to scroll up to the top of the page to reach it.
2. In Classic View, the Content Tree keeps nodes open as I explore the tree, until I navigate to a new page. In Lightweight view, only one sub-section can be expanded at a time.
 
I don't mind the new look, but I'd hate to lose valuable behaviour in the switch over.
Shouldn't good graphic design avoid placing form before function?
 
(If you're not familiar with Classic View, try it out while its still there, by clicking the settings Icon (gear wheel - I've never really understood why a gear wheel implies settings, as they're not typically adjustable on their own)
