Hi! I’m adding this topic to talk about improvements that might be made to how large lists are handled in settings.
Continuing the discussion from Discourse Version 2.1:
It seems like it boils down to three issues:
- scroll-position-jumpiness on adding or removing list items makes it difficult to know what happened and stay oriented
- long values are difficult to view
- lack of feedback on saving makes it easy to click the reset button and lose content
It looks like a good solution to these problems was proposed here:
…which resolves everything except the issue of accidentally resetting the content by trying to click the “save” button multiple times; one solution to that problem might be to immediately replace the save button with a spinner after a click.
As far as I can tell this project isn’t already in the works, is that right? Does this strike everyone as the best solution?
