Subject: Tech: 'Submit' button gets hidden - workaround
From: FreddyHeadey

Someone was breaking a message into small posts because the Submit button got hidden.

"He says later he was writing this on his phone - that is an invitation to frustration. Perhaps, Mr. Ken from Smithfield, you need to find a computer. If you don't want to lose the content (glitches do happen) then compose in a word processing or notepad file first. ---mudelf"

I have this problem myself on a 10" android tablet used in portrait. (chrome browser)(in landscape the keyboard uses 70% of the screen, which I don't like)
Yes, I'll often copy paste from a notepad file.
But the pasted text enlarges the text area down to about the "Mudcat time" line, hiding the Submit button.

The workaround
on my tablet is
- 1 - to rotate the tablet to landscape then back to portrait > Submit
or
- 2 - [and I've only just discovered this]
Tap the "Make a link ("blue clicky")" button which is sticking out to the right of the text area ... and the text area gets resized correctly, showing the buttons.

On my 2019 Nokia phone, portrait, the text area gets extended but the Submit \ Preview etc buttons can still be seen and used, albeit that they are amongst the text I'm typing.

I wonder whether Mr Ken from Smithfield was also using Chrome on Android? It seems like a quirk - possibly a bug - of the Android Chrome browser.

If you write or paste a lot of text into the text box it should become scrollable within the part of the screen left above the virtual keyboard. (On a desktop you would get scroll bar.) You should be able to flick the text up and down with your finger (which can be tricky on very small screens). The text area should never cover the submit button.

That's what happens in Firefox on Android.

You are 100% correct.

Your "work around" works well.

Thank You.

I have the same problem on my Android phone, even though I have tried three separate browsers. I will try the workaround next time it occurs and hope for the best!

Not a browser problem, then. Probably a quirk of Android's automatic display zooming. Perhaps an 'accessibility' feature.
