Interaction patterns are becoming an important method for bridging the gap between analysis and design in user-centered design. Recent studies, however, have indicated problems in their usability. Our overall research goal is to improve the usability of interaction patterns. In the first part of the research -- discussed in this paper -- we have empirically evaluated the usability of interaction patterns and outline proposals for improvements.
