Word Wrap

Would it be possible to have the ability to word wrap the screen at a user-set number of lines? I'm not sure why, but my text cuts off on the right before wrapping against the screen. Ideally, I'd wrap my screen at 80 characters or so, even though it doesn't take up my entire width real estate.

Another thing that might help is if the existing word wrap only cut off on full words. For example:

This sentence is cut-off at a non-word pla
ce.

This sentence is cut-off at a word place
only.


The second is far easier to read. It especially gets weird to cut off words when the cut off actually forms new words like: he/at

Looks great! Thank you!

I think I might only have one more item on my wishlist...

Any possibility we'll be able to highlight, then cut/paste the text in the client window in front of us? I see I can download a log, but that's a bit much for modifying help files, etc. It also requires leaving the window, which is disruptive to the workflow.

You've always been extremely responsive. Once again, thank you for your hard work on our behalf.

Unfortunately, there's a trade-off. Can't have both accelerating scrollback and normal text copying. I like touchdevice-like scrollback so maybe I'll make it toggle-able at some point.

Yes, definitely different strokes for different folks. Because I use the client on my computer, I find scrolling that way with a mouse a bit irritating - I'll try to scroll and because I didn't directly drag in a straight line, I'll move the screen right or left, sometimes without noticing I've cut off a few letters...

It works nicely now. Is it possible to get multi-line cut/pastes to populate the multi-line window or otherwise stay in memory for a dump to notepad? It copy-pastes, but to my command line, which crunches everything down to a single line.

To keep that touch-scroll style, perhaps if the scroll area were only a strip on the very right hand side of the screen? That might do to mash together the best of both worlds... maybe? I've no idea how that works. :)

Just to note - if I had a choice, I'd probably want the copy/paste to stay in memory AND populate the multi-line window or just stay in memory to Cntl-V into notepad.

The only cross-browser way to insert into the clipboard is by using Flash. Ugh.

Currently, you can press Ctrl+C to copy the text, then paste it wherever you want. I can add a user preference setting to auto-paste multi-line text into the new input area because I don't think it should be default behavior.

Being able to use Ctrl-C and dropping it wherever I like is good enough. I just didn't realize I could because once you stop holding down the mouse button, it releases the highlight and auto-pastes to command line. Right now, it works just fine for me.

Thank you!

I keep forgetting to raise this...

When you download the log using the buffer download button, the log has lost all carriage returns, mushing the log into illegible sludge. Thus, a few of my players have said they can't/won't use that feature.

See an example of what it looks like below.

Fixed.

Also, added a settings option to auto-paste multiline text into the multiline text modal.
