See in this particular case,- I saved the article after adding the section- this article is about a dialect, where in I realised that an aquaitance of mine is sort of expert on the subject so I created only the section heading and saved the article and called up my aquaitance who is not familiar with wikipedia editing and I told him to add info. If it did not work with me I know alternatives to get the things done. If the same sequence happen with people who are not well versed with wikipedia and if they have to turn for help then the software has not reached to the expected intuitive level.
Some thing is a issue or not one has to test new users in wikipedia academy with blind test i.e. just go and use it then you find the defficulties they are facing then one realises whether that is issue or not. May be VE team has already done that and is not an issue and may be thing is over looked may be.
- How else do you want to tell the editor, "I am done writing the heading, take me to the paragraph now"?
1) I Suppose if not on single click in the next line (i.e.next line after section heading) atleast on double click. That is my personal expectation as a user without knowing your technical defficulties. May be there are some technical or other defficulties.
2) But in any case section should get enabled for editing once document is saved. Document saving is usually supposed to be clear indicator. I do not know if any user behaviour study has been taken on this issue already.
What I would request minimum is add this issue for user behaviour study.
As of now any way we are running VE related site notice I can add this also in site notice to keep people informed but that certainly wont add up to intuitiveness of the software in itself.
