We also use the fix on FolioSpaces and have found it really good. Occasionally I have had an experience when the drag feature has 'stuck' but very rare, and easily resolved (kill the page).

Regards, Ian

Your comment indicates that the workaround was supposed to make it into 1.4, but I don't see it. Am I missing something or did it not get included?

If not, will the patch for 1.3 work for 1.4?

I had a look at the patch code compared to current files and looks like the code is included, but I can't see what you click on to expand the box.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

If it's working, the bottom right corner of the text box will have "wrinkles" in the grey border. Click and drag outward to expand.

Wullie, there are two different workarounds that do slightly different things:

1. Thomas's change to lib/web.php (theme_advanced_statusbar_location: "bottom", theme_advanced_resizing : true) makes all the tinymce editors resizable by dragging the bottom right corner; and

2. The textbox block configuration form (which contains a tinymce editor) can be made to fill the browser window by adding $cfg->blockeditormaxwidth into config.php.

You may want to change both.

you can also add the following lines. Works very well in many browsers and accross a variety of screen sizes.


$cfg->blockeditormaxwidth = true;
$cfg->blockeditormaxheight = true;
$cfg->blockeditorheight = 550;
