What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 131 Stack Exchange communities.

The drag-to-resize feature (present on the "review" page and when editing answers) has no limits— it can be used to expand that post container infinitely.

I think it would be useful to restrict the distance which the post can be expanded to the actual end of the post.

Here's an example where the post was expanded further than its length:

I think it already snaps to the end of the post—if that's possible, shouldn't this be?

Stop dragging it past the end of the post. Problem solved. –  Kevin Dec 14 '11 at 2:44

@Kevin: Wow, just wow! I never thought of that! –  Purag Dec 14 '11 at 3:09
    
My point is, there is no harm in keeping it the way it is, so why take it out? Other than to satisfy your personal preferences, that is. –  Kevin Dec 14 '11 at 3:20

@Kevin: because when the view stops expanding while I'm dragging, then I know there's no more to the post. If it keeps moving, I am forced to wonder whether there's just a few blank lines with more content below. –  Josh Caswell Dec 14 '11 at 3:32
    
@Kevin: We won't be "taking out" anything, just adding an extra feature that would prevent the kind of confusion that Problem mentioned. –  Purag Dec 14 '11 at 7:39
