    erm ohkey... 0.o

    I got that impression from the quote above.

    So i can expect this in about 10 - 20 years or more likely never, right ? Marked as "by design" ?
    Yes, i'm bitter, blame it in previous experiences with microsoft.

    > #1 is by design. It's an option in TinyMCE to have the box grow as you type so that you can see what you're typing without having to scroll the box down

    Ok, but it is buggy, hugh text block pasted in will make it scroll way down, so you have to scroll up to see the end of the text block you pasted in.

    I didn't know about that.
    I think it should be flipped, for better user experience.
    Make the enter key behave like an enter key again that is what the user expects, breaking your own guide lines again ey? naughty, naughty
    Also it would be good to add such info somewhere, my mind reading ability doesn't work at that distance... Wink

    wow i just have to say it: what a stupid design, plain horrible.
