This is a task to capture the feedback reported about how and where the Reply tool's text input is presented and behaves.
The "Feedback" below could warrant a series discrete interventions that warrant their own tickets or a series of changes made together as part of this single ticket.
For now, we will use this task to accumulate feedback.
| Issue | Description | Ticket| Links
|--- |---| ---| ---|
|1a. |It can be difficult to use the Reply tool to respond to a comment that has many existing replies. In these cases, it's likely you are not able to simultaneously see: i) the comment you are wanting to respond to and ii) the text input area where you are writing said response. | |@Demian: https://w.wiki/SYx. |
|1b. |It can be difficult to use the Reply tool to respond to a comment while trying to view content elsewhere on the page. In these cases, it's likely you are not able to simultaneously see: i) the comment(s) you are wanting to view to inform the response you are writing and ii) the text input area where you are drafting said response. | |@Demian: https://w.wiki/SYx. @dialmove: https://w.wiki/Ti6. @Kaartic: https://w.wiki/USd
|2a. | After clicking a "Reply" link, it can be confusing/unexpected/unclear why you are unable to use the Reply tool to respond to a //different// comment on that same page. |T257176 | @TheDJ: https://w.wiki/SYs; @Dvorapa: https://w.wiki/SYt|
|2b. | If/when you discover the Reply tool being open elsewhere on the page is preventing you from responding elsewhere, people report being inclined to scroll the page to find where the Reply tool is open, which requires more effort than expected.| T257176| " " " |
|3. | The Reply tool's text input can be too wide. //I'm awaiting details on how large the person's browser window was when they experienced this and what negative impact(s) the width fo the Reply tool's text area had.// |T257280 |@Wladek92: https://w.wiki/SjF|
|4.| When writing a long comment in the Reply tool's `source` mode, the "Reply" button can disappear from sight [because of the Preview].| | @dialmove: https://w.wiki/Ti6.|
|5.| Expected the Reply tool's compose window to open right beneath the comment being replied to. //TBD: whether the tool's behavior became clear to this person after they posted their comment.// | | @Gnom1: https://w.wiki/USH.
