    Hello together, i am really unhappy with the new Version of WordPress :(

    I always used in Settings > Writing the possibility that i could change the value of colums what are shown as Editing Field when i write an Articel, because i needed them nearly always much bigger than the standard. So it was to me always 40 Colums. Will this Feature be back, or do i just have bad luck now?

    Okay, found a solution, maybe it would be nice to have an information about that in the settings -.-

    That's not part of WordPress core, so it must have been added by a plugin or your theme.

    It was 100% a core ability from WordPress pre 3.5! I found already several Blogs where they wrote about that and why i said that i found a solution for it. Before you could already pull the Article screen down to have a bigger window, but to Fix it to a specific value you had to do that in the Option Writings in Settings. Not it is managed by cookie, one time you pull the edit screen to the desired size and it will be there as long no cookies deleted

    I am also devastated at the loss of the "Size of the post box" setting (screenshot: http://screencast.com/t/rkuEZPTaJ79p) which has been in WordPress since I started using it 5 years ago - the default is always too small, especially if you add a 3rd line of editing buttons (e.g. with TinyMCE) - the minimum I change it to is 25 lines, never the default of 20...

    @ Caylean, how did you fix it please?

    WordPress, PLEASE give us his functionality back !!!

    Thanks :)

    I've been wondering about this myself. Seems an odd thing to remove.

    As far as i understood it was a feature that most user didn't used anymore. I believe most ppl didn't knew about it only.

    The good thing is, you don't need it anymore. Open your "Create a Post" or Article or however it was called in English to write and there you find in the bottom right side of the Textwindow a small triangle, this you can pull down. You don't have to do that every time again, because it is saved in your Browser Cookies and whenever you write again, it will be automatically again the size you had chosen before.

    So all in all no big loss, just irritating in the first place.
