authoring tool enthusiasts, would it be possible to have a component's individual schema added once the component is added to the page?

currently it only adds generic model attributes until you actually go in to configure the component and select 'save'.

an alternative could be to force the user to configure the component immediately after adding?

hi Tom, part of that issue depends on what comes out of the UI/UX rework
it's a two step process now, i.e. add the component, then configure it
we could look into adding 'skeleton' component objects though, rather than the generic model attributes

interesting. thanks, that should be good enough to tie us over for the time being. i'll pop an issue on github.

is there a rough timeline for the ui refresh?

i wish there was
there's an interim UI refresh in progress to bring the authoring tool into line with the brochure site
but anything more radical or affecting functionality is still up in the air
