Is there a way for a reader (not the OP) to expand a scrollable window containing source code in a question? I sometimes have difficulty understanding a block of code because I can't see it all at once. I find myself having to continually scroll the code up and down within the window. It would be nice to be able to request that the code in all of its entirety be displayed in the question.
I wrote a greasemonkey/chrome user script about a year ago that does this. It's up on stackapps if you're interested.
From the link, its features are:
I really like this feature request. It focuses purely on making it easier for answerers to focus on looking at a problem and then creating great content. Here is a screenshot of one of the prettyprint windows expanded with some CSS manipulations:
Run this in the console to manipulate the window. This could either launch as a popup, which makes it easy to alt-tab back and forth, or just remain embedded in the page:
Of course, there is a downside to this: It may encourage more help vampires to post their entire project. We do know that Q&A tends to work best when it's represented in bite-sized, broken down components that focus on a single problem.
