Open Preview within the Same Window (Update Layout)

Open Preview within the Same Window (Update Layout)

Short, concise description of the idea
With the new update layout, posts are previewed within a separate window. The popup window lacks navigation bars and often opens at an awkward size and position. The popup is a particular annoyance for full-screen, tabbed browser windows, as those must be minimized to see the preview window. Users may think the Preview function is broken, if the window is hidden behind the current browser window or popup windows are blocked.

When a user previews a post, open the previewed post within the same window.

An ordered list of benefits

    An ordered list of problems/issues involved

    An organized list, or a few short paragraphs detailing suggestions for implementation
  • Examine the code for the Spellcheck's display layout (top options, spellcheck, edit, bottom options).
  • Modify the Preview window to match that layout (preview replacing spellcheck).
  • Test the code.
