Typing Lag When the Posting Window Fills Up
« on: March 18, 2013, 04:37:11 PM »
When you go to post.  There's this little box we type out messages in.  But as it fills up when you type a longer message, usually when a scroll bar appears to the left, I notice a difference in response time to typing.  Right now, as I am typing, its pretty instantaneously.  I type a letter, its instantly there.  But when that scroll bar appears, there's lag.  I might have typed two or three words and they all aren't on the screen.  At first I thought it was just my computer.  But not I've noticed it on several computers.

Workaround: drag the box bigger? Or don't be so verbose....  ;-)

I didn't even know we could do that. :(

Thanks for that tip! (not so much the second one though)  ;)
Take your camera with you dammit. You can't take your next "best photo" if your camera is sitting at home in the bag, now can you?

Holy Crap!  I didn't know we could do that either! 
I'll have to see if this solves it next time I write a book!
