What's with the TEENIE little comments box on reviews?

The little area now on the reviews that is the comment box is like FB. Tiny little space which makes it hard to edit for typos. Hardly room for two lines to be seen at once. GGrrrr....please add more room.

Muffet, out of interest are you using an iPad or a tablet? I ask because I have noticed the comment box when using my iPad is itsy-bitsy but on my computer the same box is much larger.

I'd also like to see the comment box a lot larger for mobile devices.

Nope. I am using Chrome on a Win7 machine as well as my iMac desktop at hope - large display - no other anomalies. Weird tiny little box.It used to be a large box?!

Can you enlarge the comment box? I'm using Firefox on a Mac and there's a little diagonal thingie on the bottom right corner of the box where if I hover over it with my mouse I can drag the box bigger. I suspect that this is browser-related - you might try IE (yikes, but PR is a really old site design-wise) or Firefox and see if that fixes things.

Oh boy - now I really feel stupid - NOW I do see the corner and I realize you are so right. WHY didn't I notice that?! No idea...and I still am in Chrome. Thanks so much. Geez....that's the kind of thing I pride myself on being able to help other people with and again I think you!

I had also not noticed the drag lines in the corner of the comment box. I didn't know if running Chrome on Win7 has anything to do with it, but I do know the Windows trick for [most?] browsers: the Control key and the Plus sign to make print bigger. The minus sign would make it smaller.

Yay, I was helpful! Don't feel dumb, y'all, I think I found that feature by accident once when I was trying to do something else.

(FYI, text boxes didn't use to be resizeable, and they still might not be on some sites and on some browsers, but I think most modern browsers allow it.)

My comment box is tiny too...it use to be bigger but I don't have an option to make it bigger. I just checked...unless I have to start typing to activate it. hmmm

I complained about this sometime ago on the Bugs/Errors site and never got a response. You can use the up/down arrows, but I would prefer a box a bit bigger so I could see more of my comment, instead of one line at a time.
