Scroll bar missing in "Preview" mode

Previously, I was able to view an entire page in "Preview" mode. Now, when I make changes and click "Preview", I can only view the top portion of the page. There is no scroll bar to allow me to scroll down to view the rest of the page. This makes preview mode useless, especially if I am working with margins and trying to get something aligned correctly. Last night at 3 a.m. I was trying to edit my website, and I had to publish every change, then log on to my website, wait till the changes got published, and then back to Yola to do more fine-tuning. Not fun!

And BTW, the reason I was editing my website at three in the morning was that I took Yola's advice (in most recent newsletter) and renamed all my pictures, in order to help Google's penguin find me. I went through and renamed ALL my pictures (some were just identified with numbers). What Yola neglected to mention was that if you rename your pictures, they will be GONE from your website, and only little squares with question marks will remain. You will need to go through and put all your pictures back in. That is what I was doing at 3 in the morning. As I put the pictures back in, some of the sizes changed, and threw the margins off. Believe me, it was a mess, and not being able to preview them made it next to impossible to edit.

Well, please pardon my rant, but I did want to forewarn others. My question is: What happened to the scroll bar in "Preview" mode...or is it just me?

First of all, well done for working to optimize your website for Google Penguin. I'm sorry the updates had some nasty unwanted side effects. I will connect with our marketing and documentation team to see if we can provide additional documentation to correlate with that post that might streamline the process or at least not leave you frustrated and surprised.

Regarding the scroll bar, we did see a couple of complaints like these, initially after launch and we released an expanded scroll bar. I haven't seen a complaint specific to Preview mode though. Can you please post a screenshot here and/or tell us the browser and style you're using so we can see if we can recreate the problem?
