 Bigger Bigger  Smaller Smaller  Reset Reset

Hi,
everytime I use the debug mode when uploading I am annoyed about that the window buffer of the output window is too small to hold the debug output, even then when uploading the only the small blink sketch.
Also I find that the -v-v-v-v mode gives too much information.
Can I enlarge the window buffer?
Is it possible to change to -v-v verbose mode?
Any other solution possible?
Regards
Reinhard

In theory there is no difference between theory and practice, however in practice there are many...

in the preferences.txt file add/change this line

console.length=500

Note that the IDE must be closed when editing this file..

BTW not tried higher values..

I tried console.length=50000.
Works well also with long outputs

Meanwhile I found a second way to bypass the problem
In my Ubuntu installation the IDE creates a directory at \tmp named "console<some numbers>.tmp"   
In this directory you will find two files containing the information from the output/debug window.
The directory is deleted when you quit the IDE.

Now only one question is open:
Is it possible to change to -v-v verbose mode?

Not without recompiling the IDE unless you get version 1.5
