Cannot close the VisualEditor in Timeless skin
Closed, DuplicatePublic

On Timeless, there is no way to get out of VisualEditor (without pressing the Esc key). I would find it easier if there was a close button on the VisualEditor so that on skins like Timeless, I can get out of the VisualEditor more intuitively (especially on mobile).

Not sure this is something to change/fix in VisualEditor... Trying on https://www.mediawiki.org/w/index.php?title=VisualEditor:Test&veaction=edit&useskin=timeless&debug=true , the Page and Discussion links have a CSS item pointer-events: none; coming from

/* While loading, everything except the progress bar */
pointer-events: none;.ve-loading #content > :not( .ve-init-mw-desktopArticleTarget-loading-overlay ),

which does not seem to get reset...
