|ADO58122||Add it: Navigating to add it from a newly published page appears to break the add it webpart layout||When viewing a page with a vertical section, there is a class name added to the page header `.withVerticalSection `. This class name makes the page titles wide.
When you navigate to a page without a vertical section (eg. add-it), the class name is still present in the page header. This causes the page title to remain wide when it should not be.

|ADO58128||Delete button on a webpart does not get focus, if the webpart menu overlaps with the webpart below||When editing webparts, there is a side [Edit] menu to the left of the webpart.

If the webpart happens to be thin the [Edit] menu can be taller than the webpart and extend onto the webpart below, normally meaning the "delete" icon overlaps on the webpart below. In this scenario, when you hover over the "delete" icon, the system thinks you are trying to access the webpart behind the "delete" icon and the "delete" button cannot be pressed.||Users can still delete the webpart using the keyboard delete button||Microsoft||2.x, 3.x|
