Alter the look of SDC GUI to hide input fields for properties which are not beeing edited
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Most SDC statements we are adding to files, like author, cameras geo-coordinates, date, copyright status, OTRS number, etc. will have a single value. Some always, like cameras geo-coordinates, and some in most cases. That is why I do not like the "look" of the statements adopted by SDC GUI, with prominent search window inviting to add a second value and much less prominent actual value of that statement. The look used at Wikidata just makes much more sense to me: there is a property and its value and the search/input window only shows up when you are adding a second value (rare case) or correcting the value. The only statement where current GUI makes sense for if "depict" statement, and for those I am OK with leaving the input field.

As of today 7 out of 7 SDC users agreed with above statement.

By the way, I explained the issue with always on input field for geo-coordinate statements with single value constraint in T227116, before it was rolled out, but my comment did not altered that aspect of the design
