    Description

      See description https://moodle.org/mod/forum/discuss.php?d=413279#p1666696

      On the quiz manual grading question page, the default student and teacher response boxes are so large that only one response is visible on my (and other) monitors, which requires constant unnecessary scrolling during marking.  Many of the responses to a question are only 1-2 lines - a complete waste of screen real estate, though some students can extend the response to a considerable essay.

      Request

      1. Whatever the box size specified in Questions/Editing an Essay question/Response Option (and seen by the student during responding), the box size is automatically reduced to the length of the response text (including link icons etc) when displayed on the grading page. This is the behaviour of the question box after the Questions/Editing an Essay question/Question text has been saved.
      2. Reduce the default box size of the Comment box to ~2 lines.  This can already be expanded by the teacher as necessary.
