The problems im having with the new 'reply' layout

I really appreciate SO's work updating the site just lately but i think one of the changes he has made needs tweaking.

Example: I go to a thread that's say 10 pages long and go to the last page and see that member A has replied to something member B has said earlier on in the thread. I read what member A has said and decide i would also like to reply to what member B has said (to further the discussion with member B) I have no way of finding the post that member B has made short of searching every post in every page of the thread until i find the original post. Then i can hit 'reply' on member B's post.

While i like the pop up widow (its nice and fast) that will show what member A is replying to there needs to be a link back to that post from member B so i can reply to it as well (if i want to) without doing a page by page search.

Heres what i mean..just a random post from a large thread

There's some kinks that need to be worked out. Overall, I like most of the changes.

This is annoying

I too have a problem (Apart from the fact that Lurch un nerves me staring

at me writing my replies

My problem is that when I preview my reply which I always like to do

the preview over lays my post and if I need to make any alterations

I can't seem to get to the post to make the correction, and if I back

track I lose the lot and end up on that 'Lurch' thread!!

I made a thread on this last week, but you worded it much better than I did. I hope you have more success than I did too

It really is a pain to scroll through page after page now.

Did you miss the small cross at the top right of the preview window?

your screen sizing will change that...its doesnt happen to me...its the viewing size on your end...tweak it larger or smaller and it'll go to far right (cant completely get rid of it!)

I appreciate all the hard work put in and for the most part I love the new way to view posts replied to. It would be wonderful to have either a reply button in the pop out window in order to reply to the original poster.

This way it is easier to view the comment being replied to but having to search through pages one at a time gets tedious, especially if, as you said, the thread is a lengthy one.

All it needs is the Link,reply and quote buttons adding to the popup window

This would make it all so much more user friendly.
