When I'm answering a question, and my question is the 3rd or 4th answer, I can't see the original question while I'm typing. I often scroll up to re-read some part of the original question. Sometimes I even paste the question into the answer box as I'm typing, so that it will be right there for me to read.

I suggest that when answering, the position of the question and the answer edit box should always look the way it does for the very first person to answer a question- that is, the question should be directly above the editor. Then after submitting an answer, it would fall to the bottom, just as it currently does.

Yes please, I often open up a new tab with the question for reference.

I will typically do the same thing myself. –  TheTXI Sep 3 '09 at 19:39
    
That works too... but the fact that you have a workaround indicates that there is a small problem to work around, yes? –  JosephStyons Sep 3 '09 at 19:41

I think the "yes Please" indicates that he agrees with you, Joseph. –  TheTXI Sep 3 '09 at 19:44
    
I guess I need a nap. :) –  JosephStyons Sep 3 '09 at 19:50
    
I was just about to post this question and searched it first. I would really love that feature and I cannot think of why its not there. Mays because of huge posts or the fact posts might get edited while you type (but what does that change?). –  Iznogood Aug 20 '10 at 3:31
