Hey Doc,

That should work, but that's part of the zoom level for IE.

Internet Explorer Zoom Level

I'll report this to John to see if he may be able to increase the reply box width, or have an option to manually increase it.
Hello Shawn look if this is going to cause problems I'll just use the zoom feature and it probably wouldn't be so awkward if the reply window stayed still still as you scrolled down but one reaches the bottom edge the whole post reply moves up.
Having said that a larger window would be nice.

I've increased the width to as much as I can without breaking anything, if you need it longer then just use the increase size button on the top right of the toolbar.

Is this possible and what does anyone else think of that because personally I have problems with the small window in hat I find scrolling up and down in a long post or reply a bit tedious when the whole screen moves with the scroll if you wander just slightly off course.

Plus it would be nice to see more of the message than is currently available because there is a ton of room either side of the post "strip"
As mentioned, that is a feature in Chrome. If you do not like Chrome you could try Maxthon browser, the only one I have used since I first tested it. Each Maxthon tab can individually be set to use either Trident (IE) or WebKit (Chrome) rendering engines.

Its weird because if I switch from WYSIWYG editor using Firefox, to the standard editor in (Edit Options in Control Panel) I get that expansion arrow in the bottom right corner of the reply box too. Not in IE though.

No disrespect Kari but I am just a bit wary of the cloud as I don't fully understand it or I would give that browser a try

It's a pretty good browser.

(I tend to use it on portable devices more myself though)
