Prefill spelling variant of new form representation
Closed, ResolvedPublic5 Story Points

Description

When adding a new form most of the time the spelling variant of the form representation will be the same as the spelling variant of the Lemma. We should pre-fill the spelling variant of a new form's first representation with the spelling variant of the first lemma of the lexeme to make it easier to add a new form and avoid mistakes.

Note: When there is more than one Lemma then we don't pre-fill.

GIVEN I am on a lexeme
AND   I click "add form"
THEN  the spelling variant field of the first (auto-added) form representation is pre-filled with the spelling variant of the first lemma of the lexeme it belongs to

@Lydia_Pintscher Ponder what should happen if there are multiple lemmas. Do we want to add a new (empty) form representation for each lemma a lexeme has?

Let's take the spelling variant for the first Lemma in this case.

@Lydia_Pintscher Unfortunately it doesn't seem that there is an ordering of lemmas. This means that there isn't a first concept of "first".

Some possible alternatives in the situation where there is more than one lemma are:

  1. Add as many new form representations as there are lemmas
  2. Add no default language and only one new representation to be filled in

After talking with the others in the hike there is a "first" that I missed which is the first in list of lemmas displayed in the header.

This isn't guaranteed to appear in any particular order depending on things like the user's browser but we can still always just use the first one.

We discussed it today and concluded that we don't know enough from the users yet and will therefore only pre-fill it for Lexemes with one Lemma. For the Lexemes with more than one we don't pre-fill.
