      Description

      When editing a web content that is based on a structure, the visual representation of the structure is not really "useable":

      • there is no indentation based on the hierarchy of the defining structure
      • the sign for repeating items is "lost" somewhere on the screen
      • the localize is sitting underneath the corresponding field
      • when opening a "browse" window (e.g. Image gallery) on the screen, this popup is opened at the top of the "browser area" and not a top of the actual visual area in the browser, thus, you always have to scroll to the top in the browser to see the popup and do your selection, then scroll back to the bottom to continue your web content editing.

      All this makes editing a structure based web content very difficult.

      Surprisingly, Liferay is providing a better, much more comfortable screen representation when you click on the structure while editing the web content (i.e. to edit the structure)

      Then a very elegant and useable screen is available. Unfortunately, this screen is for editing the structure and not the contents.

      Would it be possible to use the second screen design/layout to edit the web content?

      Since structure are ubiquitous on our web site and since we have end-users editing those web contents, this usability issue is a major problem.

      Even in 5.2.3 it looked somewhat better because it had indentation and the and trashcan icons where much more "visible" to the user.
