What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 134 Stack Exchange communities.

Steps to reproduce:

  1. Find a question/answer with a code block that, when expanded needs to be scrolled horizontally, but doesn't fill the popup vertically.

  2. Try and scroll by dragging the area below the code text, but within the code block popup.

  3. Be sad that it doesn't scroll horizontally.

I'd like it to be draggable by dragging anywhere within the popup, not just where the popup text is.


Here is a nice code block to test:

public foo()
{
    return "Very long string! Very long string! Very long string! Very long string! Very long string! Very long string! Very long string! Very long string! Very long string! ";
}

This currently works for me. I think what might be happening is that you're trying to scroll on the pop-up rather than on the actual text in the pop-up. Can you scroll horizontally if you grab the text and attempt to scroll? This seems like an issue in Android's implementation of WebKit (which is how the code is rendered right now), but I can try to figure out a fix at a later point. –  Kasra Rahjerdi Aug 8 '13 at 13:18

@KasraRahjerdi: That is what happens for me. I can scroll when scrolling on the text itself. My request / bug report is asking for it to work when scrolling anywhere in the popup –  George Duckett Aug 8 '13 at 14:39
    
@GeorgeDuckett Gotcha. I'll see what I can do. –  Kasra Rahjerdi Aug 8 '13 at 14:46
    
Though the full screen mode does fix this problem, it isn't obvious enough that full screen mode is possible. There should be some sort of "pop out icon" added to indicate this to the user. –  Reinderien Jan 13 at 18:49

Good catch - this was a bit tricky to fix but it should be in the next release: v0.1.17

This bug rose up again in 0.1.50... –  user215114 Oct 11 '13 at 4:38
    
Works on my droid. What device are you using? –  Geoff Dalgas Oct 11 '13 at 4:39
    
Samsung Galaxy S3 –  user215114 Oct 11 '13 at 4:42
    
It works on my S4 - @george can you confirm any regressions? –  Geoff Dalgas Oct 11 '13 at 4:44
    
This happens in the inline code, which scrolls horizontally for a moment before scrolling the underlying page (to switch between questions and answers). –  user215114 Oct 11 '13 at 4:46
    
Ah - yes. Touch the code to bring it up in full screen mode. Scroll will always go to the answers tab. –  Geoff Dalgas Oct 11 '13 at 4:52
