See, i can respond to your stupid respones. If you had a large enough vocabulary at your disposal you might be able to fill up enough white space so that i couldnt rebuttle your stupidity. But you don't. Why even type in ANY response iny thread if you cant help me? Its obvious you are just building up your posts.

If this is on an iPhone, then try scrolling with two fingers.

I my goodness. Thank you for helping me.
Now see, if you'd explain yourself thoroughly to begin with more people would be able to understand you and reply with a helpful answer!

If you have nothing helpful to say, it's better not to say anything.

When you're in Safari, you use one finger for scrolling, as you know. But that always scrolls the entire viewport, not the page itself. That is, the small rectangle you're "looking through" to see the webpage is what moves.

Okay, but what if a webpage has a frame, or other scrollable subsection? On your desktop, there'd be scrollbars within the page that you'd use. But oh no, the iPhone can't be seen with those. So to scroll a scrollable subsection instead of the whole window, you use TWO fingers at a time. The multi-touch screen sees that.

The reason the question often comes up because when you tap on a scrollable area to enter text, then the keyboard covers up a lot of the area. Plus you type enough, then you scroll off what you were replying to. Very frustrating, unless you know that you can dismiss the keyboard and then use two fingers to scroll up and down again.

Not sure I'm explaining this well.

Thanks. I tried it when responding to this (which is long and required scrolling the response area) but I couldn't get two fingers to scroll any differently from one finger.

I realized now that this works when you are not in edit mode. Sometimes dismissing the keyboard was not enough and i had to tap outside the editing area before this started working.

Thank you!

Great! Thanks for the reply.

This whole deal, btw, is one of the reasons why every other phone maker in the world has slowly been moving to hardware keyboards... they don't cover up the screen!
