When editing the address of a place, you used to be able to tap Enter on the keyboard to apply the changes and close that pane. Now, the enter key does not do that.

This is the phone version (above, Android)

Vs is the desktop version (below, Win10)

No save button, or other tools in the phone version - "Search location" occupies the whole top bar, other than the notifications icon.

Seems to be an issue with responsive design, if I take a desktop screen 1024 x 768, the toolbar is fine, if the window is sized smaller, such as to 800 x 600, the exact same issue occurs.

Save button missing/hidden also persists in iOS Chrome. This is impacting senior editors helping others with mobile unlocks/locks.

Thanks for changing the process of adding and removing alternate names to a segment. It is much more user friendly and more efficient to make changes, especially for segments with many alt names.

There is just an issue currently where if you click the plus button, then cancel, then click delete on an alt name, the animation of it disappearing but it's not actually removed from the list. You have to click remove a second time for it to be deleted. See screen recording below.




Also the changes made to the events UI really help to keep track of events when the list is really long, like in my city.

Overall really great and much needed changes made in this update.
 
 
EDIT: I have posted the bug in the beta WME forum

Can you tell us where you need to edit at (city, state, country), so we can get you in touch with your regional editing community?

If you add more alt names than you need because you, for example, accidentally double clicked the plus sign, it's no longer possible to delete extra alt names one by one, and saving is not possible when there are empy alt name fields. The only way out is to press cancel, which will cancel them all, including the ones you would like to keep.
