    More than likely a dumb question, but...

    When you're composing or editing a post, you get this thingie that lets you resize the edit box:

    This works great on Windows, Linux and Mac, but when I try to use it on my phone (android) or tablets (android and amazon echo), it doesn't seem to be able to work. Does anyone know how to resize on those sort of devices?

    Aha!
    I discovered that I can just hit Enter a bunch of times and the box expanded.

    I think you can drag the corner and resize the box. Maybe. I’ve only done it 10,000 times so I’m not sure!

    Touch-screens don't always play nice with objects that are designed to be clicked and dragged by a mouse, unfortunately. There's not really a way around it that I'm aware of -- but maybe one day!
