I saw this issue on all sites (excepting (Meta) StackOverflow, and maybe others). Even after Geoff's fix, this still happens in the latest build (rev 2014.6.12.1658) on Graphic Design (but not here on Meta SE). The following screen shot is taken from graphic design site:

Steps to reproduce:

  1. Open /questions/ask
  2. Type enough content into the body to remove the margin between the preview and footer.
  3. Start typing a tag - if there's more than one row of autocomplete suggestions, the list will get cut off by the footer.
  • Sorry, but I don't really see where the problem is? Can you post bigger screenshot with more of the screen and highlight the part that is broken? Mar 18, 2014 at 12:00
  • @ShadowWizard You can see even in this screen shot that the description of last 3 tags cannot be read because they are hidden under the other elements. Mar 18, 2014 at 12:02
  • Can't reproduce, that's what I see. What browser then? Is it when asking new question, edit question or editing an answer? Mar 18, 2014 at 12:10
  • @ShadowWizard Try to reproduce it on Unix & Linux. Mar 18, 2014 at 12:20
  • Right! But that's just one site. Can you see it happening in others? If not, the bug should be reported in the per-site meta. Mar 18, 2014 at 12:21
  • @ShadowWizard Same on AskUbuntu, Hermeneutics. Mar 18, 2014 at 12:22
  • On AskUbuntu I get a scrollbar on the Ask a Question page when the tag box doesn't fit. FF 27

  • @Stijn Exactly. But that's also weird. It's not reproducible on all sites. I guess it's just a minor CSS issue. Mar 18, 2014 at 12:24
  • OK, fair enough. Let's hope for a quick fix! Mar 18, 2014 at 12:25
  • What are you doing to get that small of a margin below the form? What browser + OS are you running?

  • @Shog9 It's just the footer of the page - wrote some dummy post content (representing the question content) and chose some tags. Reproduced on Chromium Version 34.0.1847.116 Ubuntu 14.04 aura (260972) and Firefox 30.0 - Ubuntu 14.04. Jun 14, 2014 at 20:21
  • Thanks - that's the bit that was missing. I've reproduced in Chrome on Windows.

  • @Shog9 Cool, anyway it's not so major, but it would be great to be fixed. Jun 14, 2014 at 20:31
  • @Shog9 Any progress on this? Aug 7, 2014 at 5:40
  • Lotta design cleanup happening ATM; probably worth checking back in another month to see if it's still happening.

We've tracked this issue down to a bug that has been present for 2 years. Our designer has filed for a blame exemption due to the statute of lessitations.

It will be fixed in the next build.
