If the autogrow isn’t working well, I’m sure Phil can turn it off and/or adopt the Sandspace model…

I don’t say auto grow is or isn’t working well. Obviously some of the regulars love it, personally I’m no fan. I just wanted to point out a weakness when it comes to saving. One thing I do in Sandspace is make the save button position:sticky (that is, it is always visible near the top of the screen) – but that is of course only helpful for Safari and Firefox users atm; Chromium is working on it, and MS Edge, hmm, come back next year….

I’ve always wanted something like this (very rough) example – maybe worth investigating?

a/ quite complex interaction model with multiple (visual) anchor points.
b/ Wouldn’t that be confusing for people who have scrollbars set to always show?

Re: Save without losing my place?

Hmmm, yes, maybe just sticking the save button will suffice.

Me neither, for the record.

imo, it should be opt-in somehow, either as a core pref, or a plugin.

(Tho I see a little “⌘+S” tooltip show up when I hover over the Save button.)

This comes from rah_knots plugin?

Yuck no, not a plugin, but I’m fine with a pref to control it, open an issue and we can implement probably. In the meantime I’ve updated that test example with a sticky save button instead of the sticky column – let me know (again it’s rough and quick but you get the idea). Only sticky in Safari and Firefox for now.

Re: Save without losing my place?

Autosize is (and should stay, imo) part of the admin theme. How could it be a general pref?

Re: Save without losing my place?

Yeah, you’re right, didn’t think that through, sorry. Anyway, expanding textarea is staying in Hive because I personally like it. The sticky save button works well IMHO so I’ll implement that sometime.

Fine with me. Sticky save is a good idea. If autogrow starts to bother me when I eventually switch my main site over, I’ll either learn to write more concisely (no more longform!) or switch theme.

Re: Save without losing my place?

No worries, just a remark. The sticky button does not seem to work in my current Firefox W7 setup, but I’ll re-test it later.
