Viewing posted code blocks RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi

    When I view posts in the forums, where there are code blocks, the code lines extend beyond the right edge of the allowed space. (I don't rememberhaving this issue in prvious incarnations of the forum).

    I can view the 'off edge' code, but only by scrolling to the bottom of the code block and uing the horizontal scroll bar.  This is hit or miss as the line(s) I may want view aremost likely scrolled way above the horizontal scroll bar position.

    Seems that wordwrap would permit the offending lines to be completely visible. (I cant see any options for wordwrap in my forum preferences etc.).

  • Yes I know. Hopefully they take a look at this when configuring the forum at all. I heard they'll change it anyways.

  • As a workaround for this issue, you could click in the Code-Block, press CTRL-A (to mark everything), CTRL-C (to copy everything) and open up a word or something and paste it there with CTRL-V. But I think you know that already.

  • Hi Livio

    Thanks, I did know (and have had to use in the past), but still a pain in the b***. It shouldn't be necessary either.  MS have tried to tweak the forums many many times, and after years have not managed to make it easy to use.
