VisualEditor: Implement a better version of enwiki's reference pop-up for very easy reference inserting
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

It is possible to have a tooltip that will tell you what a reference is when you hover over the number in edit mode, as it currently does in viewing? It is inconvenient to editors to have to go into the references mode to view the source while editing.

Any news or updates here?

The bug as was written is the highest priority enhancement in VisualEditor and we've been working on it since October.

The change in title and comment 3 reflect a further ambition for this area which will be addressed once this bug is fixed, and should be split off at some point.

This has been highest priority for four months now...
Does that still reflect reality?

Yes. Hopefully this will be PTR later this week.
