Deskana triaged T196789: Consider exposing the plain-paste shortcut in the rich-text/plain-text paste dialog somewhere as Low priority.

Including shortcut keys in buttons like that is a pattern I'd definitely like to avoid. I'm not sure what a good solution is here.

Hi, @Deskana. The steps are just the usage of these refs. But very well, here you are again:

  2. Start VE editing.
  3. Add a ref, using, for example, cite-manual-basic form.
  4. Check the references section.

Deskana added a comment to T197119: Update Visual Editor block notice to be page specific.

Are you saying that Visual Editor does not give you a block notice before you start editing?

For instance, without Visual Editor, if I go to the edit page, the page tells me I'm blocked before I attempt to edit.

Deskana added a comment to T197119: Update Visual Editor block notice to be page specific.

By design the API—and by extension the visual editor—won't let you save an edit if you're blocked; if the user tries to do so, then the API returns an error, and the visual editor passes on to the user the value of the key info from the response, which in the case of a block is "You have been blocked from editing". If the API gives a different or more specific error message, visual editor will use that instead.

That issue with the content not loading looks like an issue with the maps service, not the visual editor. The maps test infrastructure is notably unreliable, so I highly doubt that the failure means anything, but I'll add the relevant maps tags just in case. @Catrope, @Mooeypoo, @SBisson may want to take a look at this to verify that it is indeed nothing to be concerned about.

Deskana updated subscribers of T196117: [Regression pre-wmf.7] Drop down for template search results appears to go over the dialog when the template description is too long and not wrapping.

Does this patch fix the problem? I'm confused why @matmarex said this was intentional then @Esanders fixed it? :-)

Deskana added a comment to T196245: Rendering stage issues of Citation insertion tool.

I would like to split these out and prioritise them. Any re-paint that happens during loading is going to be higher priority, as are any obvious UI errors. The small changes in rendering that may happen while editing are much less important.
