VisualEditor: Applying a transclusion that only contains content brackets breaks the edit toolbar.
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

Reported on EnWiki by John Broughton:

Steps to Reproduce:
(1) Click the "transclusion" icon
(2) In the lower left of the resulting dialog box, hover over the "+" sign until the bracket pair ("[ ]") is visible; click on that.
(3) Click on "[ ] Content"
(4) Click on "Apply changes"

Now none of the "insert" icons work, and a number of other icons on the tool bar also don't work. (The user guide is silent as to what these brackets are ''supposed'' to do.)

I can confirm the same issue also occurs for me on Firefox 22, Monobook interface.

We fixed this quite some time ago; apologies for the slowness of updating this bug report.

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.
