Question Reply section does not expand.

I find this very annoying. The reply section is just one size view-able area. Although you can write well beyond the view area, the old system allowed you to expand the reply section and let you see what you wrote.

Also the emojis are not available on an initial replies. You must go to advance or preview to have access to them.

And as I just discovered, I can't take back an icon I accidentally put into t he subject line.

I know why the forum is being revamped, but it's not user friendly or intuitive. I also realize many bugs must be worked out.

Only a mod can change the title/subject line after submission. That's always been like that. I spend hours going over the titles and making corrections.

In the old board you could set the reply box and it would stay that size. Now you need to change the reply box size for each reply. You can use the arrow down to increase the box size.

When I reply to a thread.... I click on the yellow "reply" button which takes me directly to the advanced editor where everything works properly.

Thanks Pete. Somehow I missed that. When I used those arrows my font changed from small to large., but now it expands the reply area.Now I see how it works.

The box just to the right of the arrows changes the reply font size.

I see the arrows to make the box bigger but I don't think
I've ever seen the font size box to the right. Do only the
mods have that or am I blind?

No... it's not just the mods that have it. Some members and mods don't have it. I haven't been able to figure out why.
