Hiding composer panel immediately after quote will cancel post


(Erlend Sogge Heggen) #1

Reproduction steps:

  1. Highlight and quote some text.
  2. Don’t type anything in the composer. Proceed to immediately hide the composer by clicking the arrow to the right.
  3. The entire post is canceled and can not be retrieved.

Tested in latest Chrome and Safari on Mac.

Pretty sure this is by design, you have not typed any text.

I don’t see how that justifies terminating the composer with no warning.

If I wanted to cancel my post, I’d press the ‘cancel’ button. If my reply only contains a quote, you could drop the post without a confirmation prompt, like you do if my reply is empty.
