  • I like the reduced emphasis on the column title by graying them out.
  • I like changing the pencil icon to an expand icon. User feedback indicated this was confusing.
  • I preferred the grid row lines. I found it easier to track the information unit when it was confined within row lines
  • I preferred having more space between the rows. Again, I found it easier to track with more space.
