Problem Statement: It is cumbersome for the user to have to go to another page or enter an edit mode to make small changes in text. We want to allow the user to edit short text within the context of their work rather than going to another page or an "edit mode." Data thus edited tends to be brief, in keeping with the desire for rapid, small changes.
- Edit short text without leaving the page or losing any context.
- Give users a way to "back out" of an edit.
- Let the system take on some of the memory load to remember previous text versions.
- Help users discover this fairly new-to-the-web interaction.
