I tried to edit a larger post with my tablet. After scrolling down some lines it stopped and didn't get show the last ones. It also doesn't show the usual scroll down handle.

I'm using a catnova tablet with an android os, the built-in browser, and the SwiftKey keyboard.

Thanks,

EDIT from my PC

Indicated in red, the missing handle on my tablet: enter image description here

  • $\begingroup$ As a temporary workaround, I've had success in similar situations by using highlighting to force a region to scroll. That is, click and drag to start highlighting text, and drag past the boundary of the region. This will often cause the region to scroll. Of course, arrow keys or ctrl-home/ctrl-end should do that too. $\endgroup$

Touch devices usually don't show scrollbars for such things. There's nothing we can do about that.

That said, I can't reproduce your issue -- editing exactly the same answer on my tablet (Acer Iconia A500, running ICS) allowed me to scroll through the full content of the editor area. Here's a (shaky and flickering) video of me doing just that.

  • $\begingroup$ Thanks, +1 for the video. The thing is (and maybe now it became obvious that it's a problem of my tablet) that I can't scroll down to the very end. It stops at the last line of the comment area. Why not putting your video at a "HowTo" page? ;-) $\endgroup$
