[Hacking idea] Edit a section at highlighted position.
Closed, ResolvedPublic2 Estimated Story Points


When the user highlights a word in the article, it would be great to have an option that says, "Edit here", which takes the user to the editing workflow and *automatically* jumps to the location that the user had highlighted.

Expected behavior

  • Go to the "Barack Obama" article
  • In the first sentence of text, press-and-hold the word "office" to highlight it.
  • One of the context menu buttons should be "Edit here" (it may be hidden under a three-dot overflow menu).
  • After tapping "Edit here", the app should launch the Editing activity, and automatically scroll to the word "office" and highlight it.
