When you are on the post editor (page editor, whatever), if you want to create a new custom field and click on Create New, it should auto-focus on the text input field that appears.

Moved inline javascript to post.dev.js and set the field to auto-focus.

Should the input be reverted back to the select once a new custom field is added? It just seems weird (possibly confusing) because of the "cancel" link.

  • Keywords has-ux-feedback added; ux-feedback removed

I agree that the input should revert once custom field is added, without cancel link. If this is still an issue it will need a patch check due to age.

I am tackling this during weekly ux-feedback triage.
