      Description

      During the usability study, once people reached the page to change the name of a section, they were confused by the use of the checkbox to control a textbox.

      The checkbox on the section settings page is unnecessary. The functionality of the checkbox could be achieved more intuitively by:

      • placing the default text in the textbox (possibly as placeholder text to indicate it can be replaced)
      • restoring the default text when the textbox is emptied (mirrors current behaviour of saving the page with a blank name)

      It's worth checking if the checkbox setting is accessed elsewhere in code.

      This was a blocker for 1/6 participants and a lesser issue for one more.
