apptest On the post I just made with quoted text, I just noticed the little arrow allowing users to unroll hidden text quoted went missing on my post and a couple of others close by. What causes the little unroll text feature to sometimes work and sometimes not? See image.

That post is just on the cusp of the size limit, a couple pixels on one side or another of the limit. Probably a miscalculation by the app

Thank you for taking the time to explain. I got to thinkin’ (which is always a little dangerous at my age), in the “old” App when replying to a post a box poped up without a formatting header taking up real estate. When posting using a browser only using “advanced mode” do text formatting options appear. I agree it’s an improvement and enhancement but perhaps improvement is subjective in the case of a phone app. By this I mean simplicity and elegance are also improvements. Just something to think 💭 about. Perhaps posting with the app could emulate the browser experience with a default simple plain text mode and also offer a “use advanced mode” button if users want to use the comprehensive text formatting header options? This would save space on smaller phone screens and perhaps simplify the default “post a reply” look 👀 and feel. Just my two cents..

Absolutely a good idea. the main issue here is a actually balance between two concepts of usability: one is “more real estate” the other is “less clicks to get what I want”. As such, there’s no right answer in this case.

It wouldn’t be hard to hide the bar and make it appear with a button or advanced mode kind of style.

For now, the iPhone 8 has become an edge case, the vast majority of people on the app are using iPhone 14 and 13 which seems to give enough real estate to leave the top items always visible.

We did a bunch of testing with different bar sizes in the past and when it was any smaller people complained a lot about “where’s the xxx button”, so it seems we have the right balance of size right now.

One idea is that I could add. Button to open or close the top toolbar and if the user decides to close it, then your choice would be remebered. I’ll look into seeing if that can be fit in that crowded bar somehow 😀

apptest Excellent and thank you once again. I like the “hide the ribbon” button idea compromise for smaller phones and think it’s a best practice IMO. Well done 👍🏻.
