The Debug I/O tool uses the same font/size as in the editor. It should be showing the whole row, but I'm guessing the lines are too long for display and scrolled off the right. In that case, you could either wrap them with Wrap Lines in its Options menu or you could reduce the font size.

To change font size without affecting also the editor font size, turn on the Editor > Enable Font Zooming preference and Ctrl-MouseWheel (or Command-MouseWheel on OS X) on the Debug I/O tool to change the font size. I'm not sure why zooming isn't in the Options or right-click context menu as well; that seems like it should be added.

Another thing to note is that in Wing Pro 7 (available as a beta release right now) you could use the array viewer to look at the data frame. To do that, run to a break point and in the Stack Data tool right-click on the data frame and select Show Value as Array. For larger arrays, you may want to move the Stack Data tool out to a separate window by drag and dropping its tab or right-clicking on the tab and using the "Move Stack Data to" sub-menu.
