Comment #11 on issue 1426 by rewilli...@thesba.com: "Reply" on the diff
page is confusing and error-prone.
I just ran into this and lost a bunch of comments in the process. A team
member posted a new diff on a review, so I was reviewing it. He'd replied
to one of my comments on the previous diff and closed the issue. I wasn't
satisfied, so I wanted to reopen it and reply to his comment on the newest
diff. While in diff view, I could see my original comment and his reply,
but when I clicked the reply button in the comment dialog, I was just taken
back to the main review page. No text field was opened up and pre-selected
for me, and even worse, when I returned to the diff view, I'd lost all the
comments I already wrote on my in-progress review update.
What I would expect is that when I click reply, I get presented with a text
field in which to type my reply, right in-situ. Click save, and it's done.
Then it all gets submitted when I actually publish the review. I shouldn't
have to leave the page to reply to a comment, and I absolutely should never
lose comments already entered, especially with nary a warning.
