Problem: It's only a small thing but one that bugs me. When you use the VE's ability to autogenerate a reference based on a URL, oftentimes there will be need to manually fix the generated ref. However, currently you have to first save the incorrect reference before editing it.
Who would benefit: Everyone using VE
Proposed solution: I propose another button "edit" on the autogenerated reference besides add to fix mistakes immediately.
Similar, yes, although that solution would skip the "insert" button which my proposal would keep. On a side note, people should really use better descriptions of their feature requests in Phabricator because when searching for previous proposals, I could not find that one.

Note, you don't currently need to save, only to insert. After inserting you will get a preview, which has an Edit button. —TheDJ (talk • contribs) 17:38, 29 November 2017 (UTC)
In VE, but that doesn't work in WTE 2017. --Izno (talk) 19:04, 29 November 2017 (UTC)
I have to edit references quite often, mostly to go from "cite news" to "cite web" (or whatever it's called in English). From what I understand, this wouldn't cover it? Exilexi (talk) 08:23, 21 December 2017 (UTC)
Oppose I run wikiworkshops and deal with new editors very often. One of common problems they face is that they add the ref and forget to click the big blue button (they see the ref, so they assume it's been added). I'm afraid making the default Citoid window for newly added ref look the same for when editing an already-added ref would complicate things too much. Halibutt (talk) 15:01, 4 December 2017 (UTC)
Support - as proposed. The current interface has a workaround, but it is non-intuitive. Having fun! Cheers! Checkingfax (talk) 20:55, 4 December 2017 (UTC)
