Submit/cancel buttons can't be clicked anywhere RRS feed

  • Question

  • The submit buttons (e.g. Start New Thread, Move Thread, etc.) has a visual rectangle that signifies it's a button.  Unfortunately you can't click anywhere in this area for the button to be "clicked".  You can only click on the bitmap or the text for it to be "clicked".

    It would be nice if the entire visual surface of the button (i.e. including the rectangle) was part of the clickable area.

    Cheers -- Peter

  • Hi Peter-

    I have run into this same issue when posting.  I have had to hit submit a couple times in order to make sure I hit the right spot.  I belive the team is aware of this but I'll double check and log it with the team if need be.

    Thanks!

  • This seems to occur for all buttons.  For example, the Reply button, although when you hover of the reply button there's a rectangle that appears, you can't click anywhere in that rectangle and when you move the move within the rectangle but outside of the text/image, the rectangle goes away.  For example see http://screencast.com/t/hBQhGbsAJ2

    Hi Alicia.  As of 12-sep-08 this still exists.  Any word on this?

    Thanks -- Peter
