A little WP usability issue

A little usability issue in WordPress I see again and again:

  • User starts writing a post.
  • User clicks the preview button – this opens a new tab.
  • After looking at the preview, users clicks “edit post” in the top admin bar – goes back into edit mode, but in the new tab.
  • The user is now editing the same post in two different tabs.
  • Repeat the operation several times…

Wondering if WP should hide the admin bar when the user is previewing a post.
