When clicking "edit" from a section heading further down the page, the page fades out and the user is left clueless for many seconds. The section they wanted to edit is moved out of their view, and no loading progress is made apparent.
Three observed issues:
- The page seemingly scrolls a bit. This is confusing to the user and looks like an error. It is caused by layout changes along the top of the page. Those are clear and mostly innocent when editing from there, but when editing further down the page, the viewport is change is unjustified. Also, while waiting for the editor to load, the section I wanted to edit is not in my viewport.
- Assuming the section edit process is similar to that of editing an entire page, I know a progress bar is created. However it is rendered in the middle of the first section - which is not in the user's viewport.
