Add option to explicitly copy diff link to the clipboard
Closed, ResolvedPublicFeature


Feature summary (what you would like to be able to do and where):
As a Samsung J2 user, I want an option that isn't device reliant for copying a link to a diff, so that I can use the link in conversations with other editors and not worry about the link not appearing based on the variance of my device's bottom sheet.

Use case(s) (list the steps that you performed to discover that problem, and describe the actual underlying problem which you want to solve. Do not describe only a solution):
I can't s copy the links to diffs. Being able to get the diff is important for t communication. If you want to start a talk page discussion because you were reverted on an edit you made to an article, it's standard to link a diff to the changes you tried to make. If you ever start a thread at WP:ANI, you're expected to provide diffs. They're very important. Clovermoss

LGoto moved this task from Needs Triage to Up Next on the Wikipedia-Android-App-Backlog board.

Some discussion from the team:
One side suggests getting rid of share and having just "copy link to clipboard" for a diff and not showing the bottom sheet at all or an option to share.
On the other hand it is expected by Android users to see the bottom sheet, but how can this be done without cluttering the overflow menu and being repetitive.
