Pick a sentence: Loading spinner shows up when "start with a new sentence" option is selected
Closed, ResolvedPublicBUG REPORT

Description

Currently when user selects "Empty sentence" option from translation options dialog, a loading spinner shows up, indicating wrongfully that a translation is being loaded.

This doesn't impact other functionality (sentence selection/editing, etc) but is a visual glitch that confuses the user.

@Pginer-WMF now when we select the empty sentence option, there's no indication below the "start with an empty sentence" sentence in the UI that tells the user what's happening.

Suggestion:
Use the same blinking cursor as we have in the MT selection page and when the user clicks it, it takes them to the edit translation page

Pginer-WMF moved this task from Backlog to Mobile editor on the SectionTranslation board.

Good suggestion, @Jpita. I created a ticket to capture it (T270497).
