Whatamidoing-WMF added a comment to T223354: Toolbar is not supposed to float.

Be me? I was editing on office.wiki, so that means Safari version 12.1 (14607.1.40.1.4) on macOS Mojave 10.14.4 (18E226). I think that changing the screen size resolved it. Also, sometimes when the toolbar was in the right place, the drop-down to switch editing modes was detached. I assume that was related.

@Esanders, Izno's problem is going to drive me nuts. When there's an exact match, it needs to use that exact match, and not suggest something longer. If I've typed r, and the options it finds are 35 instances of r and one of Re-ping in my last 200 edit summaries, then it should definitely be suggesting r and not the other longer one.

Whatamidoing-WMF added a comment to T215283: All the other SUL wikis are missing in my Echo notifications on nlwp.

It was turned off. I have turned it on, and also set it on in my GlobalPreferences.

If @Quiddity doesn't get it done by autumn, then maybe @Aklapper will let him use it to mentor someone as part of #Google-Code-In 2019.

Whatamidoing-WMF added a comment to T146495: Retool quicksurveys so we can do a survey on one page only .

Which raises the question, what are the current capabilities re. targeting surveys? E.g., can you target to a specific page? To a specific namespace? To certain wikis? To users by experience level? To users who have just completed a specific action? Etc. Thanks!

Whatamidoing-WMF updated subscribers of T206550: Identify target wikis for mobile editing improvements.

Thanks for the quick reply, Deryck. I think that the first useful thing that you can do is to try the visual editor on a mobile device, using mobile site. (Find a phone or tablet, go to the mobile site, log in, open the wikitext editor, and switch to the visual editor mode in the toolbar, and try to improve the article.) That'll give you a feel for what it can and can't do right now. Anything that's bad/awkward/broken can be reported here. @dchan is the best person to ping if you have problems with normal typing.

https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/VisualEditor/Portal/Keyboard_shortcuts has a list, but I'm not sure that it's 100% current.
