Using the language link tool in the sidebar when inside VisualEditor loses the edit without warning
Open, NormalPublic


A user at en.wp reported today that you can add interlanguage links while you're in VE. The last step when doing so means the whole page gets reloaded, so whatever was done in VE until that moment gets lost. I am not aware of ways to prevent this, and there is no indication in VE that this will happen when you start that procedure.

Wikidata bug, not VE bug.

(Filed initially as WD, thought you hadn't mentioned this detail, re-filed again as VE. Close enough.)
