Has work on this stopped now? I see 20 unresolved issues, some dating
back from Sept last year. There are some fundamental usability issues
that haven't been addressed e.g. Line Wrap on message view.

Is this plugin open source? If so is it worth going in to fix some of
this stuff up?

Cheers,

Hello Nathan,

Has work on this stopped now? I see 20 unresolved issues, some dating
back from Sept last year. There are some fundamental usability issues
that haven't been addressed e.g. Line Wrap on message view.


I'm not responsible for IDEtalk in any way, but from my point of view, fixing
this particular issue would require a major rework. The IDEtalk message view
is currently based on the IntelliJ IDEA console view (which provides clickable
stacktraces and code pointers), which, in turn, is based on the IntelliJ
IDEA text editor. The text editor does not support word wrapping, and we
don't have any plans to support that in the near future.

Is this plugin open source? If so is it worth going in to fix some of
this stuff up?

Feel free to file JIRA issues with attached patches, or contact Kirill.Maximov@jetbrains.com
and discuss the possibility to contribute with him (note that he's currently
on vacation).

OK, then perhaps an alternative solution would be to have the message
wrapped before it is sent, say at 80 or 120 columns? No change would
then be needed to the display and this would improve things a lot. I'll
attach this suggestion to the appropriate JIRA entry.

Thanks for the reference, I'll check it out.
