Full error messages are only visible on a mouse hover interaction.
Only the truncated error messages are visible on the ERRORS page.
In the screenshot below, please notice:
- The full error message is only visible briefly for a moment if the user happens to hover the mouse cursor over a tiny element on the page.
- There are two red warning icons, and only one of them shows the full error message on mouse hover.
- There is no way for the user to see all of the errors, even when hovering over the special icon. Notice that the message is truncated in the tiny popup window, so the user cannot see all of the errors.
- The ERRORS page shows the truncated error message instead of the full error message.
This is a major usability issue, and it makes the user experience unnecessarily cumbersome and frustrating.
Always show the full error message (without truncating it) in a text field that the user can copy and paste.
Avoid unfriendly design patterns like hiding information behind a mouse-hover interaction.
Please consider simplifying the interface to show all information on a single page to reduce the number of clicks to success.
