[Pmwiki-users] reset button on edit window presents challenge
Thu Dec 2 05:58:11 CST 2004
The three buttons at the bottom of an edit window are: Save, Preview, and Reset
As long as the user has *not* done a preview, the Reset button reverts the
text in the edit window to the original. When a user does a preview, PmWiki
seems to declare that previewed page as the new state to revert to when
Reset is pressed.
So if a user is having difficulties getting the look they want and does
multiple previews, they have no obvious way of reverting to the original
page. In my case, I just abandon the edit by clicking on another link.
Presumably, this leave the page locked. To a new user, the Reset button
appears to be inconsistent in its effects.
For example: I try some markup. I press Preview. I don't like the effect so
I press Reset. Nothing happens.
Would it not be better to replace the Reset button with an Abandon Edit
button that would take the user back to the normal view of the unedited page?
As a matter of PmWiki etiquette, should I be posting items like this here
or on PITS??
