Text box width when big block of text is pasted into message body

I noticed a difference in the way the message box is formatted when I pasted a big block of text from a log file for one of my messages.

If I type the text the box width is shown normal, as you see here. But if I paste a big block of text, the box expands and reading the text becomes difficult.

Has anyone reported this before.

It is quiet a pain to read such a block when the horizontal scroll bar is not displayed.

Any comments ?

    Now I have copy pasted following text into the message body and notice how the text box becomes wider.

    if you have a bigger screen it does not matter, but if you are reading on a laptop with limited no. of columns it is a little inconvenient.

    Any solution for this ?

    • Hi Devendra,

      > Any solution for this ?

      The thing is for code you want to know exactly where the line ends. Also with long URLs, you don't want them to be cut. For your own posts you can manually put the line breaks in and no vertical scrolling will be needed.

      All the best, Mark.
