ForceWrap javadoc popup?


Is there an option in Idea to force-wrap text within JavaDoc popup? It seems that there is something like min-width after which there is no wrapping

It would depend on the contents of the specific JavaDoc section.

Try it with Boolean and you'll see that min width would be less.

Looks like preformatted code sections are not wrapped by the HTML viewer.


It seems the min-width of the popup equals the longest pre-formatted code length.

Would it be possible to alter the behaviour so that the regular text would respect the width of the popup?

One pre-formatted line destroys the user experience...horizontal scrolling for each line is very annoying :(


Pavel Lobodinský is right - min-width is tied to <pre/> block width. Example shows this:


* The Classx class wraps Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and
* typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy
* text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and
* scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five
* <pre>
* byte[] seed = random.generateSeed(20);</pre>
class Classx {}


There is additional problem with it - pre block is indented to much (IMHO). What's more "implements" line isn't wrapped either


I'd like to suggest following:

* wrap all non-pre blocks ignoring pre block width

* decrease pre-block indentation

* wrap headers (implements, extends)


Should I submit this as a bug/feature request to your YouTrack?


Also, then the doc is inherited, the `Description copied from class:` causes a huge indentation.
