Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

I've noticed when I'm editing an answer to a question that one no longer can see the question itself. Often I find myself wanting to cut and paste multiple blocks of text from the question in order to revise my answer. Because often its multiple blocks, copy/paste isn't the answer.

Maybe there is a modal dialog/toggleable view somewhere that I'm not seeing that contains the question? If not, could this be added as a feature request?

No repro...whenever I hit "answer" or "edit" it always takes me to an inlined editing box, leaving the page unchanged. JavaScript turned off? – Time Traveling Bobby May 7 '12 at 13:45
@timpeterson All I have to do is scroll up. What are you seeing? – vcsjones May 7 '12 at 13:48
Still the same, it takes me to an inlined editing box, not changing the site. Do you have JavaScript turned off? – Time Traveling Bobby May 7 '12 at 13:49
@Kobobby, vcsjones ok, sorry about this i didn't notice that there is resizeable bar that when dragged down can unveil the question. Should I answer the question with a picture showing the resizeable bar? I keep getting slammed on meta-SO so not sure what the etiquette is. – tim peterson May 7 '12 at 13:52
