Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

The new "Review" options introduced here are a bit awkward to use for editing.

Both saving and canceling an edit that you started from the review page bring you to the question or answer's normal page rather than back to the review page. So you need to go back twice to return to the review section.

(And that doesn't always get you back to exactly where you were if you had some items reviewed (thus expanded) before you started editing, though that might be a browser bug.)

Could this be changed to bring you back to the review page, or is this by-design to make sure you actually check the result of the edit in situ?

well the real solution is to have inline edit there ... will work on it – waffles Nov 1 '11 at 23:09

Just implemented inline edit in review, should be way easier to edit stuff.

Excellent, much more editor-friendly. Thanks! – Mat Nov 2 '11 at 9:26
I was going to ask a related question, but found this one. Can a similar change be made for when you're reviewing suggested edits and choose Improve? At the moment, that pulls you out of the reviewing workflow and lands you on the question's page. – joran Nov 12 '11 at 0:07
I just came to ask the same thing as @joran. What about it waffles, should we ask another question? – Benjol Dec 7 '11 at 7:05
@Benjol sure post a separate request on it – waffles Dec 7 '11 at 7:39
OK, done.… – Benjol Dec 7 '11 at 9:12
