Could you add two apostrophes to often used special character list: ‘ (U+2018) and ’ (U+2019)? It would be nice if, when clicked, the selected text would be inside these apostrophes. These apostrophes are often used in dictionaries (in many languages) to expain the meaning of a word / phrase.

About this board
This is not the place for bug reports about VisualEditor - those should go on the feedback page.
Previous discussion was archived aton 2015-09-01.
HTML5 demo is 404
Standalone demo link changed to working one
Particularly, this external link.
Hmm, yeah, let's switch to https://en.wikipedia.beta.wmflabs.org/w/extensions/VisualEditor/lib/ve/demos/ve/desktop-wikimediaui.html#!simple for now.
How to show both edit tabs for all users?
Instead of this:
Reason: Since the MediaWiki 1.35 update, which defaults to VisualEditor, I have observed in Special:RecentChanges that many edits are tagged with Visual Editor: Switched, meaning they opened VE and switched to source editing afterwards.
What do I need to change in LocalSettings.php for both tabs to appear?
You might be looking for Extension:VisualEditor#Quick_configuration_guide.
It is a separate page.
I think that it depends upon whether you have the VisualEditor/Single edit tab system. Some WMF wikis do, and some don't, and I have no idea what's the default for third-party MediaWiki installations.
Bug in media settings: Image size toggles back to default on invalid value without letting me finish type the number.
Steps to reproduce:
- Insert image in source editor
- Switch to VisualEditor. Image should be visible.
- Click on the image
- A tooltip appears. Click its Edit button.
- There are two tabs on the top: General and Advanced. Click on Advanced.
- Scroll down to Image size.
- There are two options: Default and Custom. Click the latter.
- Double-click the first number to highlight it
- Try entering a new number
Upon the last step, it switched back to Default again, apparently because the one-digit width pixel number is initially too low. But I intended to type in a three-digit width.
Not sure if I am the only one to experience this, but I posted it here just in case, so it can be looked into.
Problems with VisualEditor compatibility in mobile devices when I change to desktop mode from the mobile view
Hello, in mobile devices, when I change to desktop mode in a browser, at the time of editing with VisualEditor, it shows a notice that says: You are using a browser that is unofficially compatible with this editor. Could you solve this problem? Thanks.
The desktop software is not designed to work on a mobile device. It may behave strangely or crash unexpectedly. It is appropriate to warn editors about this risk.
I want desktop software to be designed for mobile devices too, especially tablets, because tablets are close to being computers.
Hello. When I made the edit on Help:Export, VisualEditor happened to remove much text that I did not actually remove while editing.
I did not realize it after saving.
Apparently, the same happened to the editor on that page prior to me, removing a similar amount of bytes from the page.
I suggest making the source editor default again to prevent such glitches that appear like vandalism.
Apparently, the same bug also happened to editors on Extension:MobileFrontend.
The edit summaries suggest good-faith edits, but much text has been removed in edits tagged as visual edit.
Use the source editor instead.
Yes, I will. Thanks.
But expectedly, people tend to use the default, which on this site is the Visual Editor that apparently is unstable and causes good-faith users to unintentionally vandalize pages.
I suggest the developers to look into it.
I assume that this is due to VisualEditor's lack of support for Extension:Translate.
Shirayuki, do you think that page needs an Edit notice or other warning about it?
Some pages really cannot be edit in VisualEditor?
I use MediaWiki 1.31 and Parsoid 0.9.0.
I restored Russian Wikipedia from dump and have an error opening some pages in VisualEditor. For example, Россия/Russia, США/USA, Япония/Japan and other countries.
It may be my mistake, but these are the same pages that "protected" on Wikipedia (of course, I didn't check all the pages on Wikipedia, just those I interested in).
So, the question is: did I do something wrong or some pages really cannot be edit in VisualEditor?
I can open w:ru:Россия in the visual editor. It's a large page (534,630 bytes, at the moment). Do you have problems with large pages?
error in VisualEditor#Core_module
should be "run without MediaWiki" instead of "run without without MediaWiki"
In VisualEditor would exist the option: Insert > New Section, if you go to the end of the section, bellow which you want to put the new one. --
Another way is using a floating element and put it in the place where the new section is going to be. Or simply, click in a button "New section" and click in the place of the text where the new section is going to be (then would appear a floating bar with the text. "Is it in the correct place?. [Yes] / [No]" (in any case, writting a text in the place would disappear this floating bar / message).
Do you know how to change a line into a section heading? It's the dropdown menu towards the start of the toolbar, where it usually says "Paragraph" (for plain text).
I should be able to name references
I love the VE, I use it all the time. I've written extremely complicated, long articles with it, including en:2channel, en:Bureau of Immigration Bicutan Detention Center, en:West Coast Customs, and so on. I hate switching to source editing. This might seem bizarre given I work as a computer programmer, but it is what it is. I would like to be able to give my references more descriptive names than :1, :0, et cetera, as sometimes I unfortunately need to switch to source editing and stick a ref in a template or something. Is this planned?
I believe that @IFried (WMF)'s team will be dealing with that before long. Put m:Community Tech/Allow references to be named in VisualEditor on your watchlist if you'd like to help with that.
