I cannot figure out how to not use the quick reply box

    Is there no button for a new reply which takes me to a new page with more space to see my writing? Is that to old fashioned?

    I think what he wants is a larger editing box, not simply a preview. I don't see any way to get a larger editing box, either.

    Under the old software, hitting the "Reply" button underneath an individual post opened up a separate page with a large editing box. Now it simply takes you to the editing box at the bottom of the thread, and pastes in a quote of the post being replied to.

    Under Chropera editing box grows together with the post size, I assumed it does the same under other browsers.

    Hmmm, let's see...
    line 2
    line 3
    line 4
    line 5
    line 6
    line 7
    line 8

    You're right! At least it also does this under Firefox (Mac OS). I've surely seen this before, but it didn't stick in my mind. I was thinking the edit box acquires a scroll bar when the post becomes long enough.

    This what was i ment. For some reason I hadn't checked what would happen if I used up all the lines in the box. The dynamic box is pretty smart!
