Clear debug console history

After debugging for some time, I see for example:


in the debug console. Clearing the console clears the text but the number keeps advancing until I guess restarting Wing.

Is there a way to reset that counter?

There isn't currently a way to reset the counter and we'll see if clear can be changed to reset it.

Thanks. Maybe remove the number? I don't care that it's #1,2,3. Just > is good for me.

Also maybe another topic, but I really want output going to another window, not debug console. The debug console does the vital chore of redefining functions and setting breakpoints set on the fly, a feature unique to Wing. I find the console quickly cluttered with output, leaving me to clean it up or change my print statements to output to a log, so I can use the console for only working with code and breakpoints.

What we might do is add an option for the output to go to the Debug I/O tool.

That would be perfect! :)

Also, to add something: I really want debug-move-counter to work in the recursive debug console. Currently step-over-statement works, but not debug-move-counter.
