Another, really problematic, bug with the new editor -- gets cut off! Answered

This was originally pointed out by Molten Boron in a comment embedded in another topic.  It deserves it's own bug report.  This bug causes substantial difficulty with actually being able to post comments.

When replying to a comment that is more than a few levels deep, the right margin of comments gets too close to the right sidebar.  With the new editor, the text box itself gets CUT OFF, effectively "hidden behind" that right sidebar.  This includes some of the formatting icons, as well as the POST and CANCEL buttons below the box.  Also, the text you are typing gets hidden in the same way.

Obviously, this can make it impossible to successfully create a comment.

Whoops, that won't do!  Thanks for reporting it.  Do you have a suggestion for what we ought to do with it instead?  Making all input text boxes line up on the left is the only thing I can think of offhand...

 You could just make the comment box a more rectangular shape if this happens? As in the box reshapes itself so it will still be slightly to the right but goes down further to avoid overlapping. I don't actually know if this is possible though...

That seems a reasonable option.


Either that, or turn the box on its side...

So we have to lie down to read what we're typing?  Interesting idea.  Perhaps the more, um, verbose of us would nod off instead of posting....

Well, your older (better :-) text-entry box actually got overlaid "on top of" the right sidebar under those circumstances.  If you could just grab that old bit of code back and reuse it, it ought to solve the problem. 

I'm not a big fan of the un-resizable table layout I'bles uses anyway, but that's not really relevant to this issue....
