Slate: Make it obvious that the user should scroll!

Slate is a fabulous addition to the Creative Cloud suite and will be very helpful.

However ... the opening page is a full screen with no indication that the user needs to scroll down (for browsers) or slide up with thumb (for iPad).

A very small, simple down arrow would fix this. Please can we have this!

I find I am having to explain to people when I send a link, "just scroll through my story" - or use the subtitle "Scroll down for more" which is clumsy! Otherwise some readers just admire the title page and fail to discover what's beneath.

Needing to provide an instruction book means that it's not fully intuitive interface design for all visitors to the site.

Ironically, I see that Adobe puts "Scroll to start writing your Slate" with an arrow, when we are in edit mode. It's just our readers who are left to guess :-)

What device are your users typically using to view a finished Slate?

They use any sort of device. On an iPad I think most users would intuitively try pushing the page around, if they can't see more than the title ... but even then it's not always intuitive to naive users. On a PC it's worse - again there is a scrollbar but that's not a place a user looks in for a clue.

The more I show Slate shows to people, the more I realise the playback user interface is not intuitive to people who see it for the first time.
