Event Timeline

bzimport raised the priority of this task from to Lowest.Nov 22 2014, 12:11 AM
bzimport added a project: WikiEditor.
bzimport set Reference to bz35112.
bzimport added a subscriber: Unknown Object (MLST).

This special characters toolbar is not really designed for such a thing. It's a very simple toolbar that includes buttons for all the characters of a script. So it's probably WONTFIX as a WikiEditor bug.

However, the Localization team is already working on a complete solution for providing an on-screen keyboard for all the supported languages, including Marathi.

For WikiEditor itself this is lowest priority - hence setting it.

As per current developments changed onscreen key board request changed from Narayam to ULS.

Would it be better to change Extension component from WikiEditor to ULS ?

Maybe already covered in bug 49681 for ULS?
Anyway, closing this as WONTFIX for WikiEditor itself.
