VisualEditor: Empty transclusion editor is empty, needs some kind of reassuring message
Closed, ResolvedPublic1 Estimate Story Points


When the transclusion editor is emptied out (e.g. by removing all the items), it should not just be blank. This looks broken and is confusing to the user (should I wait for something to appear? is it stuffed/errored out?)

There needs to be some kind of textual label in the empty transclusion editor, that makes two points:

  1. that the user can click [+] to add something to the transclusion
  2. that by clicking "apply changes", it will remove the transclusion

Version: unspecified
Severity: enhancement
