Limit on characters now in Inbox messages?
I received an Inbox message today that exceeded the length of the message window. There was a slider bar and I was able to scroll down in order to read the entire text. When I responded, my reply was also longer than what could be displayed in the window. Normally when that happens, the window automatically scrolls so I can see what I'm typing, and I can scroll up and down using the arrows on my keyboard to see the entire message. This time it did not do that, and I was unable to see the text that extended beyond the window. I went ahead and sent it, and I guess I'll hear from the recipient if she didn't get the whole message.
I'm just wondering if this is a temporary bug, or if something has changed with the Inbox messages as far as the amount of characters we are allowed to use. Seems to me that it was like this a long time ago. I remember sending a long message, maybe a year ago, that I was unable to see the end of on my screen. However, I talked to the person it was sent to in order to find out if they got the entire text, and they said that they had.
Hope you're not going to start limiting the number of characters we can have in our Inbox messages :-(
I tried writing an Inbox message to see if this would happen and the screen scrolled down for me instead of putting up a scroll bar. Has this happened again since creating your post here?0
Ty for responding, Samantha. Evidently it was a short term glitch, and hasn't happened again since I reported it. I'm happy that was the case, although very frustrating while it was happening.0
