Re: Save without losing my place?

Hmmm, yes, maybe just sticking the save button will suffice.

Me neither, for the record.

imo, it should be opt-in somehow, either as a core pref, or a plugin.

(Tho I see a little “⌘+S” tooltip show up when I hover over the Save button.)

This comes from rah_knots plugin?

Yuck no, not a plugin, but I’m fine with a pref to control it, open an issue and we can implement probably. In the meantime I’ve updated that test example with a sticky save button instead of the sticky column – let me know (again it’s rough and quick but you get the idea). Only sticky in Safari and Firefox for now.

Re: Save without losing my place?

Autosize is (and should stay, imo) part of the admin theme. How could it be a general pref?

Re: Save without losing my place?

Yeah, you’re right, didn’t think that through, sorry. Anyway, expanding textarea is staying in Hive because I personally like it. The sticky save button works well IMHO so I’ll implement that sometime.

Fine with me. Sticky save is a good idea. If autogrow starts to bother me when I eventually switch my main site over, I’ll either learn to write more concisely (no more longform!) or switch theme.

Re: Save without losing my place?

No worries, just a remark. The sticky button does not seem to work in my current Firefox W7 setup, but I’ll re-test it later.

Re: Save without losing my place?

Oh yeah, I’ve got rah_knots and that’s what’s giving me the Command-S shortcut. How do you people live without it?

If I were designing the backend I’d try using vh and vw or some other CSS maneuver to make the primary text area take up as much of the window as available, and only scroll the widget area, at least on non-mobile displays. I’m sure there’s some other reason why that would end up not working tho.

Mainly I am waiting and hoping for options to set the widget order and show/hide/expand/collapse settings for all users from the admin preferences.


Yes, I have tried turning it off and on.

For the code areas in 4.6.1 onwards, that technique is already used.
