In Meta, when we edit a post the revision will be displayed on the "Rev" field above "Title", as shown below:
But when I try to edit in Stack Overflow this feature is missing, i.e. it is not showing the revisions. See the image below.
But when I right click on the edit and select "Open Link in New Tab"
Then it shows the revision like:
Is this a bug or am I missing anything ?
I got the answer: it is not a bug, it is by design.
But is it necessary to have two different edit interface? What is the reason behind hiding the revision from 2K+ users when they use the normal (inline) edit interface?
