Digi-Key has long had the best parametric product tables in the industry, and this the #1 reason Digi-Key is my primary research and shopping resource when working on a new design. Mind you, there are aspects I have often cursed and long wished were improved, but with a few exceptions, they’re simple, thorough, and effective.
As of today with a new design refresh, that has all been thrown out the window. While the product tables look a little prettier, they are now an unusable mess.
Previously, there were real UI listboxes, etc. that behaved like normal listboxes in all other software on my computer. I could easily navigate them with keyboard and mouse, using normal OS conventions for navigating and selecting, such as (on Windows) holding shift while pressing the up or down arrow to quickly select a range of items to filter on, or using combinations of shift, ctrl, and mouse clicks to select various contiguous and noncontiguous subranges.
This no longer works. Now I must individually click on every … single … item in the list that I want to filter on. Arrow keys and shift/ctrl modifiers no longer work when navigating and selecting in lists.
It appears you have replaced the real list boxes and other controls (which follow OS UI conventions) with simulated ones based on DIVs and SPANs.
There are other weird, non-useful changes as well, like the Apply All button is no longer always available. (I can’t, for example, simply enter a quantity in the “View Prices At” box and hit the Apply button like I used to, because the Apply button doesn’t light up until I make some other change.)
This is not usable. Please revert this change immediately.
