in thread Edit scratchpad from within the scratchpad

Ah. Your complaint was about not being able to preview nor automatically postview your changes. Yes, that isn't the best situation. But the best way to fix that for scratchpads is to first fix the underlying problem by making them separate nodes.

The only reasons to not remove the forms are the standard "they won't remove themselves" and "some people might like them" (if for no other reason than that they've become accustomed to them).

So I'm more inclined to avoid adding new always-there forms (not do what was originally requested) than to try to rip out all of the existing always-there forms (at least for now).

    Agreed. About the existing forms, perhaps a user option to select a default displaytype from among "update" (what it looks like now, which would be the default for existing users), "regular" (no form, provides link to switch to update view, default for new users?), print, xml, edit (unlikely to be used as default) etc.

    As you say, this stuff doesn't code itself; I hope just ideas are at least minorly helpful anyway.
