Hey @ifried is this a challenge a lot of people are encountering?

So far as I know this happens consistently for every user of every language Wikisource. Hence why the Wikisourcen cannot enable VisualEditor by default in their content namespaces.

But that being said, I do not believe this is a new issue, and there should be duplicates rattling around Phabricator somewhere (I just don't have time to hunt them down just now, sorry).

I'm pinging @Samwilson and @satdeep_gill, who are experienced Wikisource editors. We would love your insights on the issue detailed in this ticket. Is this a challenge a lot of people are encountering? Thank you!

… is this a challenge a lot of people are encountering?

@JTannerWMF I just merged in a couple of dups of this. It gets ran into regularly across multiple languages, but it mostly just gets filed under "Visual Editor doesn't work on Wikisource".
