Full Screen Editor: Make It Easier to Find Empty Text Areas Before Content Has Been Entered

Reported by: studionashvegas's profile studionashvegas Owned by:
Milestone: Priority: normal
Severity: normal Version: 3.2
Component: Editor Keywords:
Focuses: ui, accessibility Cc:


Steps to replicate:
1) Create a new post or page.
2) Open the full screen editor.
3) When the editor opens up, click anywhere in the white space that's not part of the content area.

The text cursor disappears, and (eventually) so does the rest of the menu and text areas, leaving a solid white screen. I had to hunt/peck a bit to find either the title or the content area.

I recommend that (if the content is empty) that the dashed lines do not fade to enable users to easily find them if focus is lost. If there's content, the lines can fade as normal because it'll be easier to find the box with something in it.

This seems to be a problem in the latest Chrome: the caret "dissapears" and to get it back you need to click on the relatively small area of the first paragraph.

On the other hand the old DFW is (most likely) going to be removed as part of #29806 so this won't be that confusing.
