Hi everyone,

Thought I’d chime in. The workaround mentioned by arquitectostyles (a nice design that is split in the middle vertically, optionally including an intentional blank area for the button to land), is effective. It can be an awkward design constraint, but I’ve seen it pulled off well.

That said, I’ll join those that favor a change/option. I find it more than a little intrusive. It interferes with my desire to see the (often very nice) image while reading about the item. It almost compels the viewer to click just to get a good view. Perhaps a good thing in some instances, but perhaps just as often the viewer just skips to the next item. We all know first impressions are important, and this can prevent one from even being formed.

I (truly appreciate and) understand about priorities, but if enough Authors are dissatisfied I’m sure it will move up a notch or two.

Best Wishes, DA
