Schnark added a comment to T228006: Inserting special character after link links that charactar, too.

This actually happens for all annotations:

  1. Place the cursor after a bold word.
  2. Switch bold off.
  3. Insert a special character.

Schnark added a comment to T226875: monobook skin "your alerts" click brings "your notices".

These changes improve things, but nonetheless, the personal menu is still broken in Monobook. To reproduce:

  1. Visit a wiki where the change is live already (e.g. beta.wmflabs), log in with a name that is not too short (since my name is quite short and shows the issues, you'll probably be able to verify them, too).
  2. Slowly decrease the width of the window and observe all the weirdness that happens:

Schnark added a project to T226478: Syntaxhighlight in NWE out of sync when text contains TAB characters: Regression.

Actually, CodeMirror still replaces TAB characters by arrows for display, via ve.ui.CodeMirrorAction.static.fixWhitespace. It's NWE that no longer does this replacement, so this must be a regression.

Schnark added a comment to T226478: Syntaxhighlight in NWE out of sync when text contains TAB characters.

I just copied from a code file which had the code indented with tab characters. CodeEditor has nothing to do with it, this is about wikitext (which may contain code inside syntaxhighlight tags), not about real code.
No tool does or should replace anything during pasting, the pasted tab characters are still real tab characters. But VE and NWE display a tab character as arrow (just as VE displays a single line break as hooked arrow), which is shorter than the real tab character used by CodeMirror.

I can also reproduce this on mediawiki.org and de.wikisource. All of these wikis have the SingleEditTab config in common, so perhaps this has some strange effect on the focus. The focus actually isn't even on the dialog, you can't close it by pressing ESC.

The "real" solution of course would be to enable Flow, use it for all pages in project namespace that have discussions on them, and then enable VE for everything else, (i.e. the same configuration as on mediawiki.org) but unfortunately that isn't going to happen.

There is an important difference between wgMonthNames and mw.language.months.names: wgMonthNames uses the language of the wiki, while mw.language.months.names is in the language of the user.
This probably also means that sorting dates in tables is broken when the user has an interface language different from the content.

Schnark added a comment to T216413: Support accesskey (small k) in AccessKeyedElement trait.

Note that this confusion also exists in the HTML standard: Only the attribute is called accesskey, the corresponding property is accessKey, same with tabindex (that's the attribute) and tabIndex (that's the property).

Schnark added a comment to T217921: Support for prefers-color-scheme CSS @media feature in default skins.

prefers-color-scheme is a new draft proposal, supported by (at the time of this posting) two browsers.

Well, actually this should read "prefers-color-scheme is a new draft proposal, supported by (at the time of this posting) two beta versions of browsers, but only if the user uses a supported OS." (Though AFAIK Firefox supports both MacOS and Windows, only Linux is unsupported.)

Schnark added a comment to T217857: Be able to choose a specific wikitext editor when switching to source mode.

Technically, this is possible, and I do so in my script https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Benutzer:Schnark/js/veCode.js (search for EditModeOweTool).
But generally I'm not sure that two very similar options are a good idea. On which basis does a user - especially a new user - decide which of the two wikitext modes he wants to switch to? Having more choice can make things harder, not easier.

Can this note from @Krinkle be added to the description and rationale for the deprecation be added to the task description? There's really no excuse for an empty task description, especially if we're pointing people to it directly from the console.

Schnark added a comment to T213522: Reconsider URL changes done by Visual Diff.

This would make it unlikely that URLs with accidental diffmode parameters are shared, while it would be automatically included in most cases where a user wants to share the exact mode.

I don't think this works, because the diffmode is remembered in user options. This would effectively stop the diffmode ever being appended after the first time the user changes it to their preference. If the user wanted to share a diffmode they would have to change the mode twice.

Schnark added a project to T217494: Tabs being forced down and crashing with page title: VisualEditor-Initialisation.

The label for editing the local page as wikitext is actually "Create source" (see the HTML code), and only gets changed to "Add local description source" by JS (probably VE initialization code). This changes the width of the tabs, but the check whether collapsing some tabs is necessary doesn't happen again.
Ideally, the same message would be used both on server and client side, or at least a re-check should be triggered (I actually run a $(window).trigger('resize') on most pages, which fixes this issue).

Schnark added a comment to T53547: VisualEditor: Provide a "view VE" mode / disable editing for protected pages.

Additionally, if the user has NWE enabled, the old wikitext editor is still used for protected pages (but NWE loads after switching to visual and back).

And if the user doesn't have NWE enabled, switching back to wikitext gives an error: "Error loading data from server: readonly."

This doesn't happen for me locally, only on Beta, which has been stuck in readonly mode for two weeks now.

Removing the following CSS seems to fix the issue, though it will probably break something else:

Though that might be a red herring. I just noticed that the response is truncated for me, too, even though editing works fine. So perhaps the developer tools just truncate that long response for brevity.

The last response (the modules=diffMatchPatch and so on one, that apparently is causing these issues) is truncated (it ends in this.emit('removeRow',rowProps.index,rowProps.), though the response code is still 200.

the long URL in my request is just 2180 characters long, as opposed to 2403 from the perhaps-too-long URL

Just ignore that, the difference is just that I counted one with %-encoding, the other without. It actually was more or less the same URL.

I can't even select as much as you.
When I draw a selection with the mouse past a reference or a "reference needed", the current selection collapses and starts as a new selection after the reference.
If I use the keyboard with "cursor right", the same happens.
Only if I use the keyboard with "cursor down", I have a chance to select something including references.

Since rOMWC2e5871e9d6e7: Bump $wgResourceLoaderMaxQueryLength to 5,000 the query can have a length of 5000, while by default MediaWiki will not go beyond 2000. Given that the URL mentioned above has a total length of 2403 this seems like a sensible maximum that should not be increased.

Interesting, in edit view they are indeed collapsed to just a few spaces, but they definitely are there: Place the cursor after "locali e spettacoli dal vivo.", press Shift+End to select everything to the end of the line, copy and paste somewhere else, e.g. a text editor. Then you will see 26784 spaces.
