Add dedicated "remove" controls to the "Add Statement" input
Closed, ResolvedPublic


With the Other Statements feature enabled, the user can now click an "Add Statement" button to add another statement panel to the page. Once they do this, an input widget appears so that they can choose the property of this new statement panel.

There currently is no obvious way to remove this input (aside from actually making a selection) if the user changes their mind. Adding something to the right or below the input element which allows the user to remove would be good UX.

Hey @egardner I made a ticket last week that relates to this or either takes care of it: T224249

I think Eric is referring to the input field for selecting a new property, like this:

Thanks for the visual, @matthiasmullie

A trash can should do it - it can be visible/usable until a statement is added, and then the Remove all will take care of the rest. Thanks, Eric!

Verified on production that it exists for File Page and UploadWizard. On each, there is a trash can icon to remove the newly added element. We may revisit this as part of the UI consolidation effort later.
