  • I would remove the "Quick Look-Up", this is just the standard PT search available in the top bar (at the real PT site)
  • I would like a "Filter" instead, so that you can quickly scan the shown patterns quickly for a keyword, e.g. "Eye" the result will only shown pictures where the search matches, the others shall be greyed out/empty box
    Search might be relevant for parts with a huge number of parts (heads, tiles)
  • The part-code of an official part should link to the .dat file for download
  • As an option a "display as list" possibility to e.g. quickly and cleanly copy the data to Excel
    This should then shown Picture, PartNo, Description, PT Status
Not too much I hope for now

Unfortunately, most of your suggestions require more than just adjusting the theming of this page. Instead these would require rewriting or adding to the underlying script which is beyond the scope of this project.

I forgot the only one that can be done: Making the sub-headrs bold, (00 - 0z : General/Miscellaneous and Town) to make them more prominent

I'll keep the others in my mind :-)

Right now it look terrible but that because it’s in an intermediate state while I play around with the markup.

Quick request for feedback:

What is the perference for item separtion? The way the first box is presented with a border or the way the rest of the row is with no border.

I prefer the bordered one...

Now that I look at it on mobile, I agree.

Why does the page change from day to day?
Every other day it looks good, and then it looks to be to narrow again.

Today it is bad, yesterday it looked good.

Which page? The mock-up ones scale based on window size. There are 4 resize breakpoints: mobile, tablet, small monitor, and large monitor.

I’m fairly satisfied with the current design. I’ll wait until we have the rest of the framework live and post a beta page to test out the various patterns. 

One question:
Should there be placeholder text in the blank spaces (like “Open pattern 973p0e.dat”), leave them as is, or get rid of them?

All of them. Ldraw.org and the mock-ups are all treated as being "small monitors" on my 17" laptop.
I disagree.
I have to either swap to another browser, or buy a bigger screen/laptop if I want to use Firefox.
