    Sorry fellas, but I'm computer illiterate.
    When I want to reply or post a thread the input window is a good size and I can see everything I type.
    But as soon as I move my cursor onto anything else (eg: place image, fonts etc.) the window minimises to about two columns width, which makes it realy hard for me to see my input.
    The only way I can get it back to normal size is to hit the preview button again, which brings everything back to what I think it should look like, as long as my cursor dosen't touch anything else.
    Is this normal or is it me?

    Hmmm. I would run a virus check. The window is right below the last post and should not be resized if your cursor moves into it. Sounds like you have caught a cold. What virus protection are you running?

    Are you on a laptop? I know the glidepoint mouse on some laptops has a tendency to wig out and do crazy things.

    I'm using a desktop PC, XP and McAfee anti-virus, it checks ok.
    :idea: Evanglider I am using cordless mouse and keyboard, maybe thats the problem.

    Have you changed the batteries in the mouse and keyboard?

    If you have a wired keyboard and mouse to try, I would try that and see if your problem goes away. Then you can narrow it down to which of the 2 it is by process of elimination.

    Problem solved, I was using Opera as my browser, and this was happening on a couple of the Forums I frequent. Anyway I had to use Firefox to do some transactions, when I was finished I logged in here and everything worked fine.

    Evan I tried a wired keyboard and nothing changed.

    Thank you all for the help. :thumbup:

    All the best.

    Graham. :)

    Hmmm, I never thought to ask what browser. My bad! I'm glad that it's working though.
