Harley Acheson (harley) updated the diff for D3997: Node Resizing Hit Area.

Actually the new left-click drag wrecks my idea of having the drag area start outside of the node. Which is fine since I love the new left click stuff.

...but for display it's no good. Committed rB28e7c94de26a4706af16d6f2893917ca910a27ce

Don't think this is as confusing as you make out in your last statement.

Please let me explain some of these these issues as simply as I can, because these are
not just visual problems but important usability issues. It isn't just that the gizmo looks
confusing (and it does most times) but it also does not work correctly.

You're right, we need a prototype to fine-tune the details.

Testing the patch, the flickering colors when rotating the view are also not great.

I think the negative signs are more disturbing. What if you only change the opacity?
It becomes clear which axis points forwards or backwards:

Anchor and Shield work quite well! Suitcase is okay, but seems to say "pack this up so I can transport it somewhere" which could (wrongly) make sense in some cases. The Chain can look like a web link and the Database one doesn't visually say anything.

Yikes. So this patch sits here for two years and then is closed because of a mailing-list comment by Ton.

Harley Acheson (harley) added a comment to T33573: Simplified Header Statistics with Icons.

Probably best to follow the evolution of this task. It started off as showing only icons, instead of the labels, as viewed in "StatisticsIcons.png". There is a later patch, StatisticsIcons4.diff, that has the ability to show icons, text, both, or none as can be seen in "sample6.png". Worried that the icon display was a concern I made a simplified patch, StatisticsString.diff, that *only* makes changes to the text string as can be viewed in "StatisticsStringOnly.png".

Harley Acheson (harley) added a comment to T37478: Improve Tooltips to provide more information.

Not quite on topic for adding "additional information", but the following is a mockup I did quite a while ago. It uses only the current information from the tooltips, but changes text alignment, color, ordering, and adds a horizontal rule to make them a bit easier to follow:
