Edit conflict notification on Preview/Show Changes


Author: equazcion

As long as the previewing of edits requires a server query, previews should also check if the proposed edit would produce an edit conflict, and return a notification to be displayed to the user in the rendered preview screen. This should apply for the Show Changes function as well.

Mmm, this could indeed be a nice plus. Would probably want to do a merge test, and only throw up the warning if there is an issue -- at which point one could click for further details. (No sense cluttering up the view with a giant conflict screen while you're still working.)

Column Prototype
This is a very early prototype of a persistent column. It is not expected to work yet, and leaving it open will activate other new features which will break things. Press "\" (backslash) on your keyboard to close it now.
