Hi sumguy. You've written this comment on a couple of my quizzes: "The dreaded horizontal scrollbar! Try reducing cell spacing or call padding."

I replied to the first one asking what browser and device you are using but guess you didn't see it, so I'm asking you here. Also, are you viewing at 100% zoom?

I'm not getting the scroll bar on either of those quizzes on any browser on any computer.

You're right that I have no way of knowing when you've replied to a comment that I've written on one of your quizzes.

I use Firefox and Chrome on a Windows computer with 100% zoom.
