Placement and behavior of "insert media" button in the pop-up box
Closed, InvalidPublic

Description

Copied from En Wikipedia, John Broughton (♫♫) 22:40, 12 July 2013 (UTC):

The "Insert media" button, in the pop-up box, is not in a good place, from UX perspective. It should be in the top right of the box, not the bottom right. It would be even more clear to editors what the button did if (a) it was greyed out until a thumbnail is selected; (b) it had a "Cancel" button to its left; and (maybe) (c) it was labeled "Save image". [The cancel button duplicates the "X" for closing the box, of course, but this is actually good UX design - giving users multiple choices for performing the same action, as long as that doesn't clutter things up.)

Another request has been made for the image dialog to have a "cancel" button.

We no longer have a button to insert (instead, media items are inserted on selection), so marking this as INVALID.

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.
