Text input area in template editing modal is too small
Closed, ResolvedPublic1 Estimated Story Points


Experienced in Firefox, when editing the permission field of Commons' Information template.

Maybe this is a known issue, but I find it extremely painful to try editing a paragraph of text while only being able to view 1.5 lines at once (the short width also makes this worse due to excessive line wrapping). A good stopgap measure might be to let this text input be drag-resizable.

I didn't realize this is already live, we'll probably want to backport or do a OOUI release soon?

Checked - betalabs, test2, production - looks fine everywhere.

Re-opening it - Firefox 35(on Mac) still have the issue - Template text input areas do display a vertical scroll bar for chunks of text before clicking Insert. After the template was inserted - the input text boxes are still too small.

That's a separate Firefox-only issue, already tracked as T64084.

True. Closing this one - verified in Chrome/Safari.
