    I mean, making the reply box bigger.

    I never noticed the little box-grabber-thingie in the lower-right corner of the post box. Click on it and stretch the size of the post box.

    Was that there all along and I'm only now noticing it? :confused: :eek:

    It's been there for a while. If you are using FF, Opera, or Chrome, you might not see it, though you already have the ability to increase/reduce the size of all text boxes that don't have a specified height (this is a loophole in HTML code that the browsers are exploiting, the control that you posted is a JavaScript function that enables all browsers to do the same enhancement).

    Edit: whoops, misread. At the top right of the box is the JavaScript one, at the bottom right is the handle via the browser.

    I don't see any handles; but I see the double-arrows up and down in the upper-right corner. Click on the downward arrows and the box expands. Also, doesn't the text box expand if you type more than the standard amount?

    The bottom right, on the inside of the edit box, there is a triangular looking shape. That's what you want to hit :)
