Configure Number of Lines In Debug Output

How do I configure the number of lines available in the the debug output console?

Ideally I want infinite log lines.

Assuming the same console settings are used for debug you have to edit idea.properties and restart:

#-----------------------------------------------------------------------
# This option controls console cyclic buffer: keeps the console output size not higher than the specified buffer size (Kb). Older lines are deleted.
# In order to disable cycle buffer use idea.cycle.buffer.size=disabled
idea.cycle.buffer.size=1024

This should really be a property configured from the GUI don't you think?

After upgrading to IDEA 10, i had to revisit this issue, which i'd long ago forgotten about.

Regarding an old comment in another thread re: improving IDEA's performance as a justification for removing the setting from the GUI - the console (and thus my run & debug sessions) actually runs faster with a larger buffer, perhaps because it's not flushing the console as it's written to.
