VisualEditor: Move “add parameter” button to alongside the search field, not below the results list, so it can be found
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

Author: turingt

Description:
At the Transclusion dialog, after a click or double-click on the chosen parameter, nothing happens. Is the user expected to click on the "Add parameter" label at the top? To press Enter? To read the user guide for instruction on how ? None of these steps help.

This is a usability bug - the actual button is hidden below the fold, at the end of a very long list that is not intended to be scrolled through, and thus hard to discover. The button should be always visible in the dialog - otherwise, the dialog becomes unusable with long lists of parameters.

This issue is now fixed (or, rather, the button is no longer needed), as we've gone instead with single-click-to-insert, which will be deployed in the next few minutes.
