I've just bought a Nexus 5 and when I type text messages with hangouts I can only see the last 4 lines of the message.

I'm in the habit of sending long texts - 5-6 texts long - with my previous phone, HTC One S, using their stock messaging app the message would scroll up the screen so I could see it all until it went off the top of the screen

How can I replicate that with Hangouts on my Nexus, or at least resize the reply window so that I can see more than 4 lines?

Cheers

There's one way I know that can solve your problem.
You need to have your phone rooted and Xposed installed.
Then there's a mod called "SMS Xposed" that gives you the option "unlimited textbox".
Which means "Removes the 3-lines height limit for the SMS typing box".

Hope this helps

Thanks. For the moments I'm not rooted so I've installed GO SMS Pro which offers what they call 'big edit'

When I use SMS Xposed I stop getting notified of messages. Hangouts and SMS.
