  • Problem: As you can read in the Phabricator ticket, currently in VE's wikitext mode we cannot re-use citations as we can in VE. This function of VE is one of the best; the software makes us the necessary code, we have to just insert them by clicking anywhere we want. However, it doesn't work if we use wikitext mode. First, we have to switch to VE mode to use this function, then switch back. It's not comfortable and logical.
  • Proposed solution: Add this function to wikitext editor too.
