Can a second Preview button be added to the top of the Bio/Edit Text section?

+13 votes
Whenever I edit a profile's biography/sources section, I always have to scroll down to the Preview button because the edit area is longer than the browser (Firefox) screen. A second Preview button at the top of the edit area would sure come in handy!

Would adding a second button be useful to other profile managers?

Would adding a second button be doable without creating any tech problems (like server strain)?

Just an idea!!

Thank you, Eowyn! This would be very handy.

Another improvement would be if we could re-size the edit box so that the handy buttons (cite your source being the most valuable) were always visible on our screen.

Yes, that's really what I was trying to accomplish, Vici!

I find the edit area both too long and too narrow on my browser (Firefox; used with high security/privacy settings, blocking pesky elements like flash and scripts). I didn't know if it was a problem on other browsers.

If we could shorten the length of the edit area so that the formatting buttons at the top and the preview button at the bottom were both visible at the same time, my problem would be solved!

Still, a second preview button wouldn't hurt (would it?).
