VisualEditor: Embedded context menu gets in the way of content when live-editing a tall extension node
Closed, ResolvedPublic


Author: oliver.buchtala

Probably a matter of taste, but we find the embedded control not too appealing.
In our case (a block equation) the button to open the inspector is typically below. However, when the element is growing (2+ lines), it is suddenly on the right-hand side.

It would be great if there was a way to control that and override the present behavior if desired.

It would be nice to keep it consistent, although for a live-updating node it would certainly make sense to keep the context menu out of the way (at least when it is open).

Change 143393 had a related patch set uploaded by Esanders:
Never embed the context when an inspector is present

Change 143393 merged by jenkins-bot:
Never embed the context when an inspector is present

The original request was about optional disabling embedding, but this I suppose "fixes" the issue (though really that was bug 66542).
