Impossible to delete an incomplete translation

I completed a translation, I just skip a part not important from the original language, so I published. But my translation keep on the list like no finished work. So I want to delete using the tree dots on the list of incomplete articles where appear the button to delete. But this button it's impossibile to click because disappear. Can you do something to keep open this delete button so it's possible to click?

Hello @Codas Sorry for the trouble. Most likely this is due to a bug that we recently found and fixed. The correction should be available from Wednesday onwards. Please do let us know if you still face the problem. Thanks.

Sorry but no news about the problem.

Hi @Codas After your published the article, did you by any chance make any small changes when the translation was still open inside Content Translaiton? If that happens then a new 'in-progress' version is created and when you publish this second version, it overwrites the earlier version that you translated. Also, can you please let me know the article you were translating, and the languages. Thanks.

Yes, I deleted some parts just to try. So the version of the translator and published are different. But the problem I think is not this. The bug is related to the fact that I can't push the button to delete. Every time I go to the button disappear without having time to push. Try to look about this aspect.

I tried with an iPad, in this case the button keep open but the page lost the pagination so become so big and the button of delete is out of screen. try to yourself, start a translation and try to delete, you will look probably the same problem... Thank you to be interests to the problem! :)

Hello @Codas, I have captured that part in the phabricator ticket - "The article being listed in the 'in-progress' column may be due to edits done post-publication. However, even if that happens the second version of the 'in-progress' draft should have been deleted and the article shown again under the 'published' column." Thanks for confirming about the edits.

We will check about the pagination on iPad. Thanks for letting us know.
