Pop-up upon selecting text

  • Problem: Sometimes, an article doesn't include a Wikilink for an important word. This isn't a huge problem but it would be nice to have the pop-up wiki box when selecting a word or term.
  • Proposed solution: When selecting a word while reading a pop-up appears with some options like: Select paragraph/section - Copy - Search Wikipedia/Wikimedia - Quote in discussion - Translate - etc.
  • Who would benefit: Readers

I personally would not like this, so I hope it would be implemented as optional. Libcub (talk) 23:17, 30 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]

I suspect this is intended to be an option in preferences similar to page preview preference is now. Kimdorris (talk) 03:43, 31 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]
