Been noticing while I use the composer that sometimes I need to see more of the viewport to aid in making my post. I tend to browse: gather links and text. When I do that, I have to click and hold the composer’s top edge and resize it. I used to click the down arrow in the upper right but that removes the composer completely and when I click ‘make a new reply/topic’ it erases what I had in progress. I currently see no way to bring it back up with my post in progress.
My suggestion for easier posting workflow is to have an ‘inbetween’ state where there’s a small indicator at the edge that a user can click and it brings their post back in progress, thus allowing them to temporarily push it down while browsing/searching. Or have a keyboard shortcut that minimizes the composer to that resized state that I manually do by clicking and dragging at the composer’s top edge.
Right now, as I personally see it, I can’t temporarily push the composer down. If I resize, it’s clumsy and awkward at best when I am in that ‘flow’ then suddenly halting to do that. Or, I click the down arrow in the composer’s upper right and I see no way to bring it back up. There is also no visible help anywhere that may show instructions on how to bring it back up (if this feature exists).
