Fix the jump when opening the mobile context
Closed, ResolvedPublic8 Estimated Story Points

Description

The mobile context that comes out of the bottom of the toolbar needs to not push the content down when activated, but instead occupy an already reserved space. This isn't a problem when the toolbar is floating.

[mediawiki/extensions/VisualEditor@master] ve.init.mw.MobileArticleTarget: Fix the jump when opening the mobile context

The above seemed to work great when I tested on desktop. On iOS it has some weird interaction with our scrolling hacks, and sometimes the page still goes crazy when trying to place a selection (not sure if this is due to iOS Safari bugs, or also our scrolling hacks). I don't have an Android device with me right now to test.

Overall I am not sure how good this is. If we're definitely doing T204733 T221247, then maybe we should just wait for that, as that redesign should magically fix this problem.

@ppelberg, given matmarex's comment above, would you like us to continue to prioritize work on this or wait for the outcomes of the mobile context repositioning that's also happening this quarter?

Thanks for pinging, @marcella. @matmarex, what you are suggesting makes sense to me.

To reiterate: let's wait on working on this until we know the outcomes of T221247, considering as part of this work we plan to reposition all mobile context items to the bottom of the screen.

As we have deployed the new edit cards to bn/he/fa we can just QA them on those wikis?

@matmarex: If I understand correctly this issue is now obsolete with the implementation of new Edit Cards design. What's here for me to test exactly?

matmarex edited projects, added Skipped QA; removed Editing QA.

@Ryasmeen Indeed I'm not sure. There is definitely no "jump" anymore when the context menu (edit card) appears, so let's just move on.

T136840 should also be fixed by the new edit cards, but that one could use independent verification from you.
