But there's all sorts of simple instructions like "no onions" you can tell a clerk that you can't tell a computer. If you go to Whopper Lab you can see all the options
Doesn't the existence of Whopper Lab mean you can tell a computer?
I generally prefer an expanding/alternate dialog
Until you use a 10" screen. They were common in the netbook era but have since returned on laptops like the Transformer Book by ASUS and Aspire Switch by Acer. Some dialogs don't fit and I have to use the window manager's keyboard shortcuts to move the top of the window above the top of the screen to see the OK button. Or by "alternate" do you mean more tabs?
