Settings: Timezone picker usability

Core’s timezone picker is not so friendly, but Calypso’s is even less so due to it showing fewer items at once (making the zone hierarchy harder to see) and running below the fold when it opens. To navigate this I must:

  • click the timezone picker,
  • move my mouse outside the dropdown list,
  • scroll the page enough to bring the timezone list fully into view,
  • move my mouse back into the list
  • scroll to find my zone

Finding my timezone in this list was so frustrating I almost gave up. Core’s list was easier to navigate because the list is tall enough to get a sense of the list hierarchy.

Environment: macnchrome on a macbook pro.
