This can best be displayed with an example.

When the question has a lot of long tags the edit tags button wraps over to a new line.

Clicking on it most of the tags disappear to the left of the box

This is the question in question, from which I've removed one of the tags thereby breaking the perfect example (sorry but is complete crap). Here's another example that demonstrates the same problem.

It seems to happen when the combined length of the tags is 99 or greater. The same behaviour occurs on this question, which has a total length of 99 but not on this one where the length is 98.


This is absolutly the intended behavior. If the tags are longer than the tag edit box, you have to have some sort of scrolling. This is exactly how a normal textbox behaves when the content is longer than the box is wide – some things disappear on the left or right, and you have to use the cursor/Home/End keys to get around.

  • I would normally expect them to disappear off in the other direction, if they have to, but fair enough :-). – ben is uǝq backwards Jan 26 '13 at 12:15
  • Then the cursor (which is at the end) wouldn't be visible. – balpha Jan 26 '13 at 12:18
