Javadoc help wrapping still busted?

Is it just me or does The popup help javadoc (yellow box that popups up
when you hit ctrl+Q) still have a busted layout? Everything on my
screen is wrapping at about 80 pixels.

No, it happens for me too -- if there's another popup showing at the
same time (or right before you press Ctrl-Q). See also

Unfortunately, you're not the only one :(

Yup, every time when used on a member in a completion popup. Erratically
(goes away if invoked a second time) when used on an identifier in the code.

Wow, is there a reason why this is not fixed yet? It's been like this
since the inception of the EAP I think! Kind of annoying, ok not show
stopper, but it's making the lengthy javadocs, especially those in the
JDK which relate to Interfaces, very hard to read.

I've also noticed that the display font for the popup doesn't use the
one from the editor, which is what I would expect it to do. It just
uses Times New Roman or something awful like that.

Ah yes... so the workaround is to move the mouse away to whitespace
after place the cursor on a symbol, then press ctrl+q...

Good find!

Yes, this is because of the bug introduced in 1.4 JDK. And it is not so easy to find the workaround.

Ouch, no wonder I don't see this on an OS X machine.

Bummer.
