Have to enter "preview edit" twice to Preview result in centre of page

Hi @evan ,

Don’t know if this is a problem at my end, but have noticed that when editing a question the Preview Edit button has to be entered twice to get the Preview to load at the centre of the screen.

If you only enter it the once the most that you get in the Preview is the title of the edited question showing at the bottom of the page.

Win 10/Chrome

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

That’s a strange bug. Although, I think that the whole question is there—the issue seems to be that only part of the preview is scrolling into view.

Can you confirm that for me?


hi @evan,

Yes, the rest of the preview is there if you scroll down

I've used the question above and described below what happens .

When I edit the question the top of the Preview edit button is at the bottom of the screen. I have to scroll down 1 line with the mouse scroll wheel to see the "Preview Edit" text in the button (but that may be just my screen or may depend on the length of the post).

However when I click on the button the Preview edit button moves to a position about the centre of the screen and all that is visible of the preview edit is just the two lines of the question title. I can scroll down to view the rest of the preview.

If I click the Preview button again the whole Preview edit box is centred showing the entire question title and subject.

Hopefully this makes some sense.

@evan It depends on how big the post is. If its large it can take a bit of time and sometimes I’ve needed to hit it again to get me the post button.

Do you think we can get the field cache action back. Lets say you post an answer or comment and you are trying to open a second URL, sometimes opening the 2nd window fails and the original window jumps to the second URL, when you try going back your entry is lost! This worked for many a year. It can be very frustrating!

Now I have to constantly save so I don’t loose my entry but as I’m still composing people think its done when it’s not. We also had the ability to drag copy into the answer comment field thats also gone.
