When the coder receives a review, there are two ways to view the review:

  1. 'view review'
  2. 'view diff'

In the first view, you only get to see the lines that the reviewer commented 
on, which is usually not enough context to understand the problem. So you often 
need the second view.

However, in the second view, you cannot write a reply. If you try to write a 
reply, it becomes an entirely new draft review with a new review comment 
instead of a reply.

It would be much more efficient if you could write a reply while looking at the 
full diff (or even the full file, as is possible in the 'diff' view). You can 
work around this by switching back and forth between the views, but that is 

I think a very good way to fix this would be if you could expand hidden rows in 
the 'review' view, similar to how you can expand hidden rows in the 'diff' 
view. Would this be possible to add in a future version of ReviewBoard?
