    I'm having a problem when replying to threads that include a quote where the entire edit box is filled. I can't find an easy way to get the bottom of the quote area to enter my reply. Other than press and hold till I get the magnifying glass and drag down. However, that is very slow. There must be a better way.

    This is not the only time I see this behavior. On other web sites there are sub windows that I can not scroll up or down, limiting what I can see. For instance a channel listing on my cables website. I can't figure out how to scroll up/down through the channel listing.

    I'm sure there is an iPad way to do this, but I haven't figured it out yet.

    Any ideas?

    Never mind. I figured it out. When all else fails, read the manual.

    Part of your problem is that most of these forums and websites are designed to work with desktop devices using mice. :(
    Just look at the page select buttons.

    Perhaps we should agitate for touch friendly forum design.....
