I hope this is the correct forum to post my comment about the new forum format. When replying to a comment thread, there is only one line provided for the response. Therefore, the text rolls out of view making it impossible to review my response before committing it to the system. The only way to check for grammatical errors in my reply is to post it and then edit it. That is frankly, a sub-par method for Adobe. I suggest the reply editing box be large enough to allow typing to wrap as it does during initial posts. Are you experiencing the same difficulty when you type a reply?
Do not reply to an individual message, that "nests" your reply and it is not readily visible
Click the blue reply on the original message
John T. Smith, thank you for your quick response. I would prefer my post be associated with an individual message if my reply is relevant to something written in that individual message. If not, I would certainly reply to the original post. If your recommendation is a permanent solution, then the option to reply to an individual message should be removed.
Adobe will be rolling out regular updates to the forum capabilities. This issue is one that has been brought to their attention. We don't know how they're prioritizing the feedback they are getting, so there's no telling when this particular issue will be resolved.
You may want to edit your original post and add the Feature request (or Bug, or both!) topic tags to it, as that makes it more likely that the Adobe employees monitoring this forum will see it and add your voice to their weighing process.
> New Forum format a little frustrating
An understatement, certainly.
We've prioritized switching the quick reply function (that currently pops up when replying to a reply) to a full rich-text editor for replying for an upcoming release.
Hi - When you reply to a post, the reply box is just one line, without any formatting options as compared to when the initial post is created. Is there a way to set an option to have the default reply box be the same full size box as when creating an initial post? I just replied to someone and wanted to post a link and had to click on "post" then go back and edit the message, which brought up the full editor, but that's not intuitive and requires a lot more effort.
Also, with the "one line reply box," if you hit enter/return, the software instantly posts your message, when you may have wanted to start a new paragraph. Then, you're forced to go through the routine above to finish editing the post, at which time someone may have seen your reply, and it makes no sense since it's only half written. Or worse, if you decide your reply wasn't worthy and don't want to post it, there's no option to delete it. The only option is to edit it.
It seems the new software is geared towards quick, one line answers, which isn't really condusive to a forum like this, where people often reply with multiple paragraphs, links and photos.
Interestingly, I discovered that if you reply directly to the original poster, the full editor comes up, but if you reply to someone further down, the one line editor comes up. IMO, it would be ideal to either have the full editor always come up or give an option in the preferences for each person to choose which they prefer.
The real reason for all of this is the people that made the choice of the new forum software do NOT have a Clue, Are Brain DEAD, Children, Live in a BOX on a street corner, Have never talked to another Human Being.
I merged the 2 topics as suggested. BTW, that's a new feature the old JIVE forum never had. So Khoros isn't all bad. It just needs lots & lots of tweaking.

Really ? If a software is unable to work decently with the default settings, I think there's a problem. Some basic features expected from a forum software are missing, bugs are ubiquitous and I'm not sure that this depends on tweaking even more. I'm wondering how Adobe could decide to let that thing go online before testing it internally at least a few hours (which would have been enough to detect all current major problems).
