Description Jason Spiro 2007-03-22 09:22:14 UTC
When you selected text then click "edit this page", the editing textbox should
highlight the text you selected to draw your eye to it.

See also related idea: bug 9366.

I'm going to dupe this to 9366 since it's exactly the same thing.
(Double-clicking a word selects it in browsers.)

I am referring to a different situation: when you highlight a whole sentence or
a whole song name with the mouse, then click "Edit this Page" at top of page.  I
know such a feature wouldn't be very discoverable, but I am still requesting it;
I'd find it handy.  So, reopening.  :-)

See bug 9366 comment 4.
Comment 4 Dan Collins 2011-11-29 22:06:22 UTC
Is it even possible to tell what is selected when the edit link is pressed?

With modernish browsers... it *should* be:

https://developer.mozilla.org/en/DOM/Selection
http://dvcs.w3.org/hg/editing/raw-file/tip/editing.html#selections
http://dvcs.w3.org/hg/domcore/raw-file/tip/Overview.html#ranges
