Utopian comment box resizing and mouse lag / Nov 19, 2017


I was trying to comment on a post today and saw that the comment box was too small. I tried to enlarge it and it work but is still small. Maybe for my resolution and what i am used to work in steemit.
You can read this post also on utopian.io


First, i thought resizing thing, it is a bug but i think it was more an option choosen by the devs.

The one i see as a potential bug is the mouse speed of resizing. It has some latency when moving mouse which is very strange because it feels like the mouse it don't work. First time i hit it slightly over the mousepad ;-).
You know the feeling, like when the windows freezes for a sec when something is killing cpu for short time.
And from what i see it happens only on utopian. So are not my browsers (i tried both on chrome and firefox).

Now, the pictures and details:

Default size looks ok:

utopian.io - comment box resizing

Adding text and maximum height (for comment):

utopian.io - comment box resizing 2

Adding text and maximum height (for post):

utopian.io - comment box resizing 3

Resizing on horizontal it goes over the right side:

utopian.io - comment box resizing 4

Recommended for max-height

utopian.io - comment box resizing 5

The id for the comment box element is:


For desktop stylesheet

Original code is:
style="height: 58px; min-height: 58px; 
max-height: 154px; overflow-y: hidden;"
I would recommend:
  • Maxim width = 670px
  • Max height = 400px (at least, to have space and view longer comment)
I tried in inspector with this settings in chrome:
style="height: 394px; min-height: 58px;
max-height: 400px; margin: 0px; max-width: 670px;"
where i put
max-height: 400px;
max-width: 670px;
or maybe restrict it on vertical resize because we need to see more down, not on the right:
For post textarea (when writing a post), which have a default 298px it could be
max-height: 600px;

Regarding the mouse laggy move i don't know what settings are to be changed.
So i can't provide that details.
I tried also on my other laptop and the issues are the same.
