I think that requires separate tasks

The mobile visual editor has a checkbox for minor edits. The mobile wikitext editor does not. @ppelberg, should the VisualEditor tag be removed from this task, and the description updated to specify that the problem is in the wikitext editor?

Note that it is possible to mark edits as minor using Mediawiki API sandbox, visual editor, and other custom editors (such as WIKI+). The problem is only with the mobile wikitext editor.

Hi all! Thanks for creating this task. I've been editing a lot on mobile recently, and the ability to mark an edit as minor is one of the top things I've been missing.

Agree with Sdkb. This and also the ability to edit or at least see the /* section */ part of the edit summary. See T234982: Varying approaches to section names in edit summaries (mobile vs desktop and visual vs wikitext). Mentioning it because it could be part of the same redesign (add checkbox for minor, add textbox for section).

This was actually already present in another version of the mobile editor, this version is superior in every way as it is basically just the desktop editor but mobile, unfortunately the technical team removed it either last year or the year before. You can still kind of access it by clicking on "Edit" in desktop mode, then click on "Mobile view" and it should be visible for half a second before it switches to the annoying version of the mobile editor. See the example below.

@DonTrung that's the non-javascript version of the page. I commented somewhere else that I'd like to be able to access that without disabling JS, but the reaction was along the lines of "what the heck for?"
