DFW: After switching to DFW the scrollbar may confuse

  • Go to add new post screen (visual mode)
  • Switch to DFW screen
  • You will see the scrollbar on the right (or left)

From my point of view the scrollbar is confusing. I would expect there is something below the editor, but there is nothing. Not really distraction free.

We should update the height of the screen, because it's still the height of the new post screen without DFW.

2nd opinion?

This has been bothering me a lot.

Also if you write many lines of content...the container expands. But if you remove content - it does not.

See attached screen shot.

  • Type changed from defect (bug) to enhancement

The DFW blocking div has position:absolute (vs. position:fixed) in order to push the scrollbar properly. For now I don't see a reliable way that works in all browsers to set the scrollbar length or add/remove it. Please reopen with a patch if you find one.
