Issue with trailing |- in tables

When a table ends with an 'empty' TR (so basically a |- \n |} ). It renders it with an extra HTML row using the VE, compared to the PHP generated output. Example link: (talkcontribs) 18:02, 3 January 2013 (UTC)

Bulleted list deletion problem

I was editing WP:FTCG using VisualEditor, and attempted to delete a list item. I eventually managed to do it (see page history) but it was very difficult. If you highlight the entire line and hit backspace, it is easy. But if you delete all the text on the line (leaving the bullet point), which is what I did, you can't delete the empty bullet point without some hocus-pocus. — This, that, and the other (talk) 04:54, 8 January 2013 (UTC)

Still getting ./

I'm still getting the ./ issue in piped links. Is this tracked in Bugzilla? Superm401 - Talk 06:44, 8 January 2013 (UTC)

Review and save button inactive on Turkic language

On the article "Turkic language", I was trying to do an edit. The edit seemed to go well, but the "Review and save" button is inactive and cannot be used for saving. denny vrandečić (talk) 18:05, 9 January 2013 (UTC)

Watchlist auto addition -- repeated comment

It automatically adds edited articles to the watchlist. This is not good. Often the edit is done merely for ce, and not because of a special interest in the article. The automatic addition then requires either diligence in un-clicking the watchlist star at the time of editing or going back to later manually clean up the list. Please disable this feature.--S. Rich (talk) 02:13, 30 December 2012 (UTC)

Your proposed change would be just as bad, if not worse -- it means that editors have to be familiar with the blue star in order to watchlist articles they edit using the visual editor. Powers T 22:13, 30 December 2012 (UTC)
I don't mind the auto add as long but the problem is that there is no warning that it's happening. If the watch page box was ticked when I'm at the review screen and if I untick it then that instruction is followed then no problem. NtheP (talk) 22:26, 30 December 2012 (UTC)
At the edit summary stage, we have two boxes for clicking: minor edit and watch this page. Just now I edited an article, clicked the minor edit and left the watchlist button unclicked. The minor edit showed up just fine. The particular article was added to my watch list even though I did not click the button. This is a flaw unrelated to the watchlist star.--S. Rich (talk) 22:36, 30 December 2012 (UTC)
Sorry about this; this was a bug that has been fixed, and will be deployed in the next release (which will be deployed to tomorrow, and to here on 28 January. Jdforrester (WMF) (talk) 00:04, 16 January 2013 (UTC)

Japanese language

When writing Japanese script, only the first word is usually visualized and saved. Ciphers (talk) 19:55, 28 January 2013 (UTC)

Korean characters are same. I captured it on here - Ellif (talk) 23:38, 28 January 2013 (UTC)

In User:Galadrien/Temp, I entered in between of this page and tried to input some Korean characters, but After I input one character and remove them, then Korean characters not input in this editor. Ellif (talk) 23:34, 28 January 2013 (UTC)

Saving error

Testing VisualEditor in my personal page, got "Error saving data to server: Failed request: error."a Alfem (talk) 08:09, 29 January 2013 (UTC)

Can't edit "manually ordered" list

This page has a list of items, manually numbered 1., 2. etc. with blank lines between them. I cannot edit those in the VE, which is strange, since these lines do not use any wiki markup. (Note: this page will change soon...) Magnus Manske (talk) 11:57, 29 January 2013 (UTC)

Arabic VisualEditor

When I want to select any specific Arabic letter or word by using VisualEditor will not allowed to made this orders , because all sentence has been selected, not only word or letter within the sentence. عربستاني (talk) 13:34, 29 January 2013 (UTC)

Open Links

I fail to open links in the editor. No preview :/ Subfader (talk) 17:04, 29 January 2013 (UTC)

Ok doubleclick (wtf) does the trick. Next problem then: I can only open it in the same window since middle- or rightclick doesn't work. --Subfader (talk) 17:07, 29 January 2013 (UTC)

Want to fully test it on Wikipedia:Sandbox

Enable it on Wikipedia:Sandbox ? I want to fully test it, esp saving. --Subfader (talk) 17:09, 29 January 2013 (UTC)

Editing lede

Editing the lede (adding wl) deleted the whole rest of the page. Incidentally, I was incapable of editing my edit summary. Mac OSX 10.6.8, Chrome 24.0.1312.56, have not tested other browsers ~ Amory (utc) 03:13, 30 January 2013 (UTC)

Drag and Drop

It doesn't support DnD of text. When I type in text and want to move it to another place inside an article, it doesn't work. Milan.j (talk) 23:44, 30 January 2013 (UTC)

Red links

Links which should be red (ie, to pages that don't exist) are showing up as blue in Visual Editor. This is happening both with existing red links in articles, and if links to non-existent pages are added via Visual Editor Evad37 (talk) 13:41, 31 January 2013 (UTC)

Tables aren't there yet, but would be the next logical step

Can you please work on snapping in the tables to the next release of visualeditor? That's one of the biggest things left out at this point. Thanks a ton for the great work! Iq1001 (talk) 21:45, 31 January 2013 (UTC)
