Template editing within referencing is complex to the point of hampering usability
Closed, ResolvedPublic

See http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Wikipedia:VisualEditor/Feedback&oldid=563842762#Reference_Issues:_Omnibus_Edition

User Joe Decker has detailed the steps necessary to add a reference to an article using a citation template. While I have as per his request entered some of these as separate bugs or enhancement requests, I am opening this one to note the complexity of the process. As he describes it, it is 73+ steps to achieve in VE what can be achieved in 11 in the older processes.
