    How to expand the message box

    How to expand the message box


    In case you don't know, there are little tiny up and down arrow button in the upper right hand corner of your message box and if you click on the down arrow it will increase or stretch-out your message box giving you more visible working room to type in and format your message.

    It looks like this:

    It's kind of tiny so here's a screen shot to show everyone where it's at...

    Re: How to expand the message box

    Is there anyway to shrink my message box? Everytime I see a PM pop up, I just know its KillrWheels reminding me "Its Only Wax, and To Take A Deep Breath"

    J/K Killr. I actually appreciate your friendly reminders

    Re: How to expand the message box

    If you use Google Chrome (and maybe other browsers) there is a little corner resize tool on text entry boxes that allows you to drag the box to a larger size to suit your needs. It shows up down on the lower right in the quick reply box.

    I just downloaded the newest version of Google Chrome and took this screen shot.



    While you can use the up and down arrows to stretch or shrink the message box it's missing the button to toggle between WYSIWYG and Editor Mode.


    Unless I'm just not seeing it?


    Again, this is why I use I.E. not that I think it's a better overall browser but it lets "me" take advantage of all the available formatting options in vBulletin and these are things I need to be fast and efficient on a vB forum. But that's just me...
