Sizing handle doesn't seem to work.
« on: November 25, 2017, 09:44:21 pm »
The area at the bottom centre of the posting field, which turns to an "up/down" arrow when you hover over it, doesn't work to resize the posting field. I presume that's its intended purpose.

When I left-click on the double arrow and drag it, it just includes any text below the box that I drag over and doesn't resize the window. I've tried various positionings and all buttons on the mouse.

Is it just me?

Hmm, mine works okay.  Which browser are you using?  I normally use Firefox for the LGC.

Opera. Perhaps that's the problem.

Thanks. I'll try another browser.

Sometimes, if you have had updates, things don't work right, which brings on another patch to fix the issue.  I used Opera years ago, but haven't in a long time.

I get the same thing with Chrome Mr T - but I think that and Opera are basically the same machine.

Me too, Darryl. Just posting this to see the posting field. There's an "extended = sign" just below the orange line. Ah, the things you learn every day  8)
