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

Description

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.

Column Prototype
This is a very early prototype of a persistent column. It is not expected to work yet, and leaving it open will activate other new features which will break things. Press "\" (backslash) on your keyboard to close it now.
