Allow me to expand the compose message box by dragging the corner (make it as big as I'd like)
The compose box is ok for Twitter, but when doing FB & G+ messages, it would be helpful to go past 4 lines. Make the box expandable to any size I want by letting me drag the corner, just like in a lot of forums. it is currently too small.
Please increase the size of the message writing area. Seriously, I know we should do short messages but sometimes I need to post more detailed messages and to do so in such a small text prep area makes it harder to do.
I can only see 3 lines at a time when entering statuses and can't scroll line by line despite there being a ton of empty screen space. Please make the post status box bigger
Sometimes I write really long statuses, especially for Google+. Would love more writing space. The space now is small and hard for editing and long status updates.
When you compose a message you only get a small window to do this.. More then 80% of the screen isn't used..
That fact and considering probably most users spend about 70/90% of the time composing messages on Hootsuite next to all other features it really should have a redesign.
Hootsuite is great, but I think there is still a lot of room for improvements on the usability!
Interesting idea! We’ll look at altering the design of the compose message box in the future. Thanks!
Argh! It's so annoying. Think I'm going to have to go back to posting in FB and twitter separately as that is less of a pain. It's ridiculous

+1 to this.
I have a pro account and i'm about to cancel it as I'd rather write posts in the FB or G+ text box where I can see the entire text!
Agree completely. This is such a pain. I have made many mistakes because I can't see the entire box.

Those would be ticks to concur!
I'd like to vote for this a million times please!
I agree, Just started using hootsuite today and upgraded to pro straightaway. Apart from the message space I also have alot of networks to manage and find it fiddly to scroll down in the compose box to choose the correct one. If we could expand the compose box (and even better if it remembers the last size) I could see them all easy and just choose.
I totally agree with these posts. We need a larger canvas for editing.

This is so true -- I can't stand writing FB posts in the current compose box!
