    So I'm pretty pleased with my iPad overall - just got it a day ago.

    However, I just noticed while posting on a forum that if I reach a length beyond the size of the composition window, that part moves up beyond the screen of the composition window and I can't find a way to scroll back up to the beginning of my message to change things (on both this forum and others).

    Ditto when I wrote a long draft in Gmail.

    The Mac version of Safari has the little edge at the bottom right where you can click and drag the composition window larger to make up for that. But the iPad version of Safari doesn't seem to have this option. And maybe it's really obvious and I'm just missing it but I can't find a key on the keyboard that lets me go back up in the message or window, etc.

    Does anybody know if this is an issue? Or if there's some kind of obvious way to go back up that I'm completely missing?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you! I knew it had to be something obvious lol.

    Or you can tap to get the edit tools (select / magnifier), and drag in a direction to auto-scroll in a text field. (If it's not far away and you're going to edit anyway, it can be easier)
