This is also helpful because it resolves the problem of literal pipes in aliases.
**As a wikidata editor**
**I want to** see existing aliases in individual lines
**so that I** can edit them easily without bothering about syntax
 When switching to edit mode, each alias gets their own input line
 The pipes are not visible anymore
 There is a new empty line below all entered aliases
 the new line can be reached by either pressing return, clicking/tapping on the line or using the arrow keys (this is possible on some mobile keyborads as well)
 When users enter the alias field, the new line will be in focus
 The newline has a placeholder text "enter an alias"
 If users enter info here, it is saved as a new alias
 Once the user has entered a first character to the line, a new line (again with placeholder) appears allowing to add yet another alias
 The empty alias line should not have any effect on saving
 When the contents of an alias is fully deleted or contains only whitespace and then the line loses focus, the line disappears
 When the aliases segment is out of focus again, they stay extended, and would only collapse once users click on save or cancel
 The individual aliases can be navigated with the common tab/shift-tab behavior
 Aliases that are longer than the input field allows are wrapped
 In reading mode, aliases are still shown right behind each other, separated by the internationalized language separation character
- Is it possible to have multiline aliases?
** answer: no
- Will there be the danger of mixing up long wrapped aliases with being two aliases
** answer: long lines will be wrapped! And it will be clear which are wrapped vs not by the spacing: see [[ https://www.figma.com/file/g86G4bYOcUoIPwEbN041nq/180607_Termbox-Mobile-Sprint?node-id=1243%3A389 | here ]]
