When Editing a Post

When Editing a Post
Most boards now have a capability that enables me to increase the size of the window containing the post I am editing.

This is tremendously convenient because it enables me to open up the window and see an entire paragraph at a time.

That, in turn, makes it much easier to see an entire thought at a glance and thus makes it easy to update the thought I had in mind.

As it stands, it's kind of awkward to update a post when all I can see is a portion of the paragraph that I want to update.

My suggestion is to do the same thing that other boards do and add some arrow boxes that enable us to increase or decrease the size of the window we are editing.

I realize that this suggestion most properly deserves to be sent to the people who created the board software and that is not you or most anyone who reads this forum.

But, posting it here is the only possibility that is open to me.

Actually you can make the editing window as big as you want with both the Quick Edit and Full Edit features.

In both cases, in the lower-right=hand corner of each editing window are a set of dots shaped like a triangle. Hover over them and your mouse will turn into a slanted, double-ended arrow. Just click and drag the editing window to make it larger or smaller.

I had almost forgotten I started this thread.

I'm so happy I discovered it by accident and learned I can increase the size of the edit window.

In case you haven't noticed, I'm a rambler, gambler kind of guy and need big windows.
