There seems to be no way to navigate directly from the "new" pop-up editor script to the "old style" full editor mode, which is currently particularly inconvenient for two reasons:

a) I cannot add messages to watch list from the pop-up editor

b) I cannot access the «» quotation marks that I need.

I even need to use right click to access the old mode, because the middle mouse button opens up the pop-up editor instead, for some reason. Even if were to become able to do the things above, I'd still like a link to the full editor mode - instead of just disabling it for myself (and where would I do that if I wanted to?).

We will consider these issues while redesigning the interfaces.

You can change your preferences in a way that all pages you create or edit are added to your watchlist automatically.

There is a way to get to the classic editor from javaScript editing. You need to have your target language in your list of support languages.

  1. If a translation alraedy exists for your language for that message: In the JavaScript editor, open your language in another tab or window by right klicking the language name behind it, and selecting "open in new tab" or "open in new window". Then you get a new tab or window with the classic editor, and the message in your language ready for editing.
  2. If a translation does not exist your language, save one, e.g. "XXX", and reopen it. (Despite the now existig translation, your language will not be shown in the JavaScript editor, due to caching) Open an arbitrary other language in an extra tab or window. There your language shows, and you need another klick to get to it.

These tricks may not work with all browsers or implementations of JavaScript, though.
