create option appears when you type full cardname.
Not seeing it.

Good catch. I broke it somewhere along the way. fixed now.

Nice. Only remaining input is that "Create: Basic (type)" is pretty arcane. How about "Add a Basic card" ?
(I think I've seen "create" newly in some other places, though my memory is that at some point we were consciously shifting to "add" as a more user-friendly term. Will try to ticket these as I see them.)

Good points. I'm not really in love with any solution yet. I was mostly going for visual scanning. I'm not sure how we rank the different values here, but some things I liked about the current solution:
1. common pattern of "Label:" before each term
2. bolded text lines up vertically on each term (this one seems key to me and would be harder with a sentence)
it wouldn't be too hard to change Create: to Add:, though it does seem to me like it should be the same for name and type. I think I played with the idea of "Add: Basic card", but it seemed not to jump out that this was not a name.
I think the good news is that this is pretty arcane functionality at this point that pretty much only wagneers will see.
Do you think I should make the change to "Add"? Do you want to push for any other change in this release?

I do think Add is better than Create. I think having the bold line up is not worth losing a clear label. I've thought about how to make the labels' bold text line up, and the closest I get is "Add: a Basic card" - that pushes the bold "Basic" only a bit out of line with the rest of the Search menu, and the option is different enough to perhaps warrant prompting someone to read carefully. As you say, it won't show up often to people who don't know Wagn well.

I'd also prefer to autocomplete partial cardtype names. It would save typing.
--John Abbe.....Thu Jan 05 17:37:11 -0800 2012
hmm, both "type" and "card" seem like showing wagn's innards. and I do think visual noise is a big cost. so much so that I'd almost rather drop the feature than lose the vertical alignment.
What about for names:
and for types:
"New" works with most cardtypes except for Basic.

Brilliant. Maybe someday we rename Basic to make sense :-)

so...ready to close?

Still not seeing it work for autocomplete. You want me to add a ticket for use autocomplete for typed card creation from Search box ?
