Thanks chad for all your help!
I also can't reproduce the original report in the general case: when I type text into the "Create Task" form, click a notification to navigate away, then press "Back", my text is recovered. This is true whether Quicksand is enabled or not.
Thanks for the feedback, those are useful references.
That wouldn't actually address the original problem here (accidentally setting your computer on fire and losing work) but would address the issue in T12731.
A possible attack on this is via whatever future abuse system we ultimately might build (T10215).
Maybe also T11440 for drafts.
I think its fine to let people manage how they get notifications in Phabricator, however giving every user the power to override every other users notification preferences would make Phabricator significantly unpredictable, which isn't acceptable to me in an enterprise setting. I'd suggest these users affected by focus issues use any of the hundreds of applications already available (including the task I merged this into, which will give even more control).

I do think "Quote" needs to be somewhere (it wasn't listed at all in T11401#224171, though you mentioned it). Shift-click on reply could also be supported, but such a power user feature is far less important than an easily discoverable function. I believe that I personally would use "Quote" more often than "Edit", but honestly would be happy wherever this were put. I'll probably upgrade my Phab instance and start using the "R" shortcut next week either way.
I'm also toying with the idea of "Shift+Click" on "Reply" to "Reply-with-Quote" but the only way to discover that would be to read the documentation.
(I normally think of myself as like a 95th percentile power user, and don't use keyboard shortcuts at all in Differential today, and suspect I still won't after these changes. However, I'm also an elite mouse power user, per J769.)
If nothing changes, I was thinking of leaving these top-level:
That is, we show the keyboard shortcut on the dropdown along with the action.
I think if we combine dropdown with keyboard hints, it'd be a good middle ground.
I'm not sure if D17908 is going to stick, but if it does we more reasonably have room to add a caret menu here. I'm not planning to necessarily pursue this in the current iteration, but I believe there are no longer any meaningful technical blockers, just some product questions which will more or less resolve themselves if everything sticks.

Thank you! I read Describing Root Problems but I guess I missed some important points.
See Contributing Feature Requests, and use Ponder or Conpherence if you have general questions on how to do something in Phabricator.
