    Default Posts editing window is small

    Hello,

    I would like to know if it is possible to edit posts or like just now, create a message in a bigger window than the current one.

    Sometimes, it is a little bothering to need to use the slider to go up or down a message if it is bigger than the current window.

    Hope what I'm saying is understandable...

    You mean like this .... give the video time to load !

    To be honest, If the post is likely to be long enough to worry about the editing wiondow soze, its long enough to crate off line and then cut and paste into the editor.

    Remember that editing or creating a large post online is risky, time outs, loss of service etc will cause you to loose your post.

    Looks like the video requires a username and password...

    yes it requires a user name and password to access the files area.

    I'd create a video to show you, but that would be in the files area too !!!

    Look at the msg box, it tells you the user name and password !!!

    Thanks Lester,

    I'm on my way going to buy some new glasses

    Nevertheless, I can't make it work as you show it in the video (no handle to grab and stretch).

    Nice video anyway

    ok, try this:
    • in this thread, click reply
    • on the top right hand side of the page you'll see an A with double up/down chevrons next to it.
    • use those arrows to enlarge / reduce the text edit window.

    If you chose the 'Go Advanced' option to bring up the full text editor, you'll find those arrows just above and to the right of the 5 smiley faces.

    Incidentally, if you click the A instead of the chevrons, you toggle markup view on and off. i.e you can instantly preview the post.

    Firefox allows you to ZOOM text or pictures or both. To zoom text just Ctrl and +

    Anyway, like a miracle happened, I can now see "grab points" (no idea how this is called) so it is fine

    Thanks for the help
