    Description

      In essay questions, the size of the input box provides an important visual cue to the amount of answer expected.

      When a teacher reviews an essay question set to use the HTML editor, then the input area collapses to be as small as the student's answer, and so teachers miss out on this useful visual cue.

      It is a small point, but when it was raised by OU teaching staff, I realised it was worth fixing.
