Not planned Edit message in existing redactor


Active member
I posted this message:

I want to edit this message and quote previous message, how to do it?

I Clicked on edit message button, i have 2 redactors, for what?

I clicked on quote message button:

Quote should be inserted to edit message editor.

What i suggest?
When i click on edit message button, message will be inserted to existing redactor. We don't need to load and render new editor.

  1. Speed
  2. Convenience

Your fundamental suggestion appears to be to have message editing happen within the quick reply editor. There are several reasons not to do this, though most significantly, it will lead to a confusing UI, as it won't be clear what the purpose of the quick reply system is (which is to reply to the message, not edit). So I wouldn't expect to see this.
