Thanks for the graphics.


Funny, on the text-only poll I voted for record/stop, as this is intuitively correct.

[One can get in trouble for playing packets back into a live network. :-) ]

But it seems that the record button (small red dot on a large button) doesn't

transfer well to the screen, looking instead like an indicator light.


Also, the fourth example has no shape distinction at all, so people with red/green

color blindness would need to rely on tooltips / button placement.
