In usability testing conducted on 12–13 May 2015, only 6 out of 10 news users were able to successfully save their edits—the lowest rate among all the tested tasks.
This is likely due to new users being familiar with online WYSIWYG editors like Google Docs, which automatically commit changes as they're typed, without any discrete save step.
After few iterations the following prototype addresses the issue.
Click on edit -> let the toolbar load -> click next the end of the second paragraph
This uses a chrome element to convey state of the document.
Previously, we had moved the progress bar to the center of the editing window because users who scrolled down could lose sight of a progress bar at the top of the document. We'll need to make sure we don't revive that problem in the new implementation.
