Having trouble with typing long posts

Postby Jess » Sun Jan 30, 2011 2:18 am

Lately I've been encountering a bit of a glitch when I'm writing a post that has more lines than the text box. Once it reaches that length, instead of the text scrolling up so I can continue to type on the bottom line, it stays where it is and I can't see what I'm typing. Even if I manually scroll down to the bottom, as soon as I type anything it jumps back up to the top. Each time I press a key it goes to the line where the cursor is for about half a second, then straight back up to the top. Very disconcerting, and near-impossible to write anything - I have to cut-and-paste the post into Notepad and finish typing it there instead.

Does anyone else have this problem, or know how to fix it?

I had this. If you're using Internet Explorer, try using Compatability View - the button to the left of the Refresh Button

Discussed the problem in 'My text box goes wonky at the bottom'

Ah, thanks for that. I should have read through the older posts - normally I would, but I didn't for some reason....
