Confusing scrollbar & resize handle placement in no-JS mode
Closed, ResolvedPublic1 Estimated Story Points


The placement of scrollbars and resize handles (in the corner below the scrollbar) is very odd, especially in no-JS mode:

The large gaps on the right are where the buttons would go. But there are no buttons in no-JS mode.

The patch originally suggested to just remove some padding, leaving this:

Note the padding to the bottom and right is entirely gone, and the text touches the border.

In patch set 3 I'm suggesting this instead:

  • The padding is still there, but not outside of the <textarea> any more, but inside.
  • The padding on the right is reduced.

Awaiting approval by @ecohen, and possibly PM, if needed.

I reviewed this with @ecohen and we think the suggestion ('third version' above) looks good, so happy for you to go ahead with the patch.

I will put the Unplanned-Sprint-Work tag back in for tracking purposes as it does have additional story points associated with it.
