Simultaneous moving of both pointers
Open, Needs TriagePublic

Description

Copied from https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Topic:Tj8zjrj001qq7uk1 :

Wargo: My proposal is option (additional draggable element or keyboard combination) for moving both markers simultaneously by one mouse move. For example to quickly move to next revision. Now I need to move one slider and then to move second slider within the same number of steps


As I understand it this would mean if the pointers were pointing at revisions 56 and 58 the user should be able to hold down a keyboard key and drag the pointers together in a single action. So With a single drag action the pointers would be able to move to revisions 55 and 57 for example.

I was just looking at edits of [[President of the United States]] and using the RevisionSlider and found myself moving both pointers to compare newer revisions.
I then realised there was already a link for this, the "Next edit ->" link.

The RevisionSlider could alter this link when loading and load the next edit using AJAX & keep the RevisionSlider itself loaded.
The same could be done with the "<- Previous edit" link.

I also thought it would be cool to have a notification / new revisions automatically load on the side of the slider, but that would be for another ticket / feature...

I found it can be partly achieved by moving one (for example left) after the second pointer.

Indeed, but 1 click is better than 2! :)

No, it needs one move.
