When I take advantage of the edit facility - Usually as a result of my poor spelling I note that the post opens in a post-box type slit which is the same height as the Reply box - but the reply box has a facility that it's height gets bigger as you make the post.
But when you edit, as in this example, you only see 2 lines of your post - In this case my reply has 20 odd lines. It is actually quite tricky to edit.



This is IE 11 on a Windows 8 laptop

What browser? On Chrome the edit control (which as you say is infuriatingly not auto-sized) has a re-sizing handle bottom right which can be pulled down to expand the box.

Hi Stuart, I also have the same problem with Internet Explorer 11. I'll pass this along to Insided.
I've got the same issue on Chrome 64 bit on a Mac. And yes, my typing skills appear to be worse than Stuart_W's......but I do see the 'resize' bit that ratty is talking about. But perhaps setting the default first position to slightly more than 2 lines might be useful.

Not for me. Edit a post in Safari on Mac (Sierra 10.12.3) and the same thing happens - what do you mean re-size?


Edit: Thanks jgatie. Yes that does work. But it does start at the post box slit size

On the lower right corner of the box is two little diagonal lines. This is a resizing box. Grab it with the mouse and drag down.
