Quite often, I see a partially correct edit in the "suggested edits" queue. Such as the editor fixing 10 grammar mistakes, but introducing other 3 at the same time. Or improving code formatting, but slightly messing up something else. I like to Improve such edits to fix the bad bits.

Unfortunately, once I click Improve, I couldn't find a way to see the edit's diff again (and the Improve button is scripted, so no "Open link in new tab" is possible). Finding the 3 mistakes (particularly in a long post) is pretty hard.

Am I missing a way to view the diff when improving the edit, or is there none? And if it isn't, could it be added?

    Good idea. And to the best of my knowledge this does indeed not exist. – Bart Oct 8 '13 at 14:48

    This would also be great when making suggested edits in the first place, for those of us with less than 2K rep. I remember seeing a feature request for that, too, although I can't find it at the moment. – Hannele Oct 8 '13 at 14:58
