When editing an answer, there's sometimes reason to look at the question again (I just had such a case). Therefore I think it would be a good idea if the question would be shown on the page where you edit your answer, so the edit of the answer can be checked against it.

The page should still be positioned so that your edit box is on screen immediately; having to scroll to see the question is absolutely OK.

As a bonus, long questions might be displayed in a shorter box with their own scroll bar, so you can always see the part you're currently referring to close to your current edit.

I often use two browser tabs for this reason. I agree it would be nice to not have to do that. Olin Lathrop‭ 23 days ago
