  • Problem: In the mobile Visual Editor some functionality cannot be used or can only be used to some limited extent. That's because the menu does not offer all functionality. Furthermore, the following items are cut: Some toolbars, the "formatting" menu. Furthermore the menu gets into the way for tables.
  • Who would benefit: Users of mobile VE
  • Proposed solution: Make the displayed items in the toolbar dynamic and hide other entries under "...". Also include the "desktop only" elements.

@Honischboy: Auf welche Bildschirmweite bezieht sich dies? Ich kann das Problem nur reproduzieren unter 360px Weite. Und wie genau stoert das Menu bei Tabellen die Sicht? / Which display width does this refer to? I can only reproduce with less than 360px width. And who exactly does the menu get into the way for tables? --AKlapper (WMF) (talk) 00:19, 20 November 2017 (UTC)
Es ist ein ZTE Blade L5 und hat eine Bildschirmgröße von 480 x 854 Pixel (https://www.inside-handy.de/handys/zte-blade-l5/daten). Das Problem kam übrigen erst, als auch bei kleinen Bildschirmen die Schaltflächen - beschriftungen angezeigt weren “mussten”. --Honischboy (talk) 18:12, 21 November 2017 (UTC)
Das Menü bei Tabellen stört mir die Sicht, indem es so weit vom Oberen Bildschirmrand “Herunterhängt”, dass ein großer Teil des Bildschirms davon abgedeckt ist. Ich kann auch ein paar Screenshots davon senden. --Honischboy (talk) 18:12, 21 November 2017 (UTC)
