Good idea!

What particular features are you using in the advanced mode? Because it might be a nicer workflow to actually make it unnecessary to open the advanced mode and to make those features available directly in the page editor on-wiki. For example, T294903 is about adding the crop tool to the main image viewer, and T279405 is for better language-selection.

Mainly crop tool, so it would be covered by the T294903 patch when (if) it will be implemented.

I have only one doubt: when using the crop tool directly into the main proofreading interface, it will replace or append the OCRed text? For full page OCR the logical thing would be replace, but for partial it should be append

The patch as implemented inserts at the cursor (or replaces the selection).

Today I missed this option. I'm transcribing a work that requires a couple of "advanced" configurations (tesseract method, language and crop area) and It's easier to just change the number in the URL and keep the rest of settings. Next button would be even awesomeer.

I ended up creating a custom JS script on my side that added two links. The page+2 is specially useful

xurl = document.URL.replace(/page(\d+)-/, function(match, p1){ return "page" + (parseInt(p1)+1)+"-"})
x2url = document.URL.replace(/page(\d+)-/, function(match, p1){ return "page" + (parseInt(p1)+2)+"-"})
