I am writing documentation for a software program. To open a document, it must be double clicked.
Considering readers skimming through the screenshots only and not reading the text, how to design the double click action so that it is understood intuitively?
If possible, this should be inline with a single click, which I also need to indicate.
So far I came up with a pixel arrow and a single circle vs. double circle. Is that clear enough, also if the reader sees one of them only? If yes, why is it good enough? If not, what could be enhanced and why?
The green color used here is one of the CI/CD colors for highlighting.
Thanks for the feedback so far. Based on the answers and comments, I have compiled a number of options and collected a bit of (subjective) feedback. Since I need to consider people printing the documentation, I also need to look at the black and white version. Proposal no. 5 with the additional
x was IMHO best received.
