Could the textarea on the edit field be made bigger? The space available often feels rather cramped.
I presume that the current size was chosen when a resolution of 800x600 was still the most common, but with the current resolutions of computer screens, I think it can be a bit bigger. If it fits on 1024x768, it should be fine
Screen resolution statistics for 2008:

You can set the size of the text area in user preferences.

Arno, given that the screen resolutions are getting bigger, I think you can set the default text size to be larger than what it is now.

I have changed the default size from 65x20 to 80x25. Users having changed the size previously have to update their UserPreferences manually.
