Just curious to get some preferences on this.
Do you prefer to have:
Fewer elements that perform multiple functions (e.g. a button with 4 conditionals that can have it looking 4 different ways and with 4 different workflows), or
More elements that each have one function (e.g. 4 buttons for the above scenario).
It seems to me that #2 can make the page really busy with elements, but with #1 it can be extremely confusing figuring out what the button (or other element) is for.
I know I’ve kinda answered my own question here - I’m just wondering what people tend to prefer
