VisualEditor: Saving or closing the editing pane does not restore the default view of the article
Closed, ResolvedPublic


The VisualEditor isn't perfectly rendering markup yet (which is understandable), and even when it does it'll look slightly different from read mode in a lot of ways. The problem is that cancelling the VE editing interface, or saving, loads a VE-rendered article view rather than what the article actually looks like.

(sorry if this sounds nonsensical; it's difficult to explain at this end).

The example given at the enwiki feedback page was [[scaphoid fracture]]. Observe the spacing of infobox content, then enter and leave VE mode and notice the alteration.

I believe all of the changes for this has been merged and fixed some months ago; please correct if there are still issues.
