i dont seem to remember WingPro limiting the output in Debug I/O window - it is currently doing that.
I have just upgraded to, running on Debian 10 x64 Linux.

how do I configure the Debug I/O window for unlimited scrollback.


product Wing Pro version (rev 979f106f1aaa) release date March 30, 2022 os version Linux version 4.9.0-8-amd64 ( (gcc version 6.3.0 20170516 (Debian 6.3.0-18+deb9u1) ) #1 SMP Debian 4.9.144-3.1 (2019-02-19) cpu ['intel(r) core(tm) i7-3520m cpu @ 2.90ghz 2299.963 mhz 64 bit'] memory ['16130356 kb']

Sorry, turns out that Wing does truncate the buffer to keep it below 10MB in size due to performance limitations in the underlying UI toolkit. The work-around is to use Configure External Console in the Debug I/O tool's Options menu.

OK thanks for the clarification.

Wing doesn't truncate the Debug I/O but it does skip over output if the CPU needed to process it all is too high. One thing to look at is Retain History in the Debug I/O tool's Options menu. But that would be relevant only if there are multiple processes and you're losing output from earlier processes because Wing is discarding their output when new processes are started. From what you wrote above, I'm not sure that's what's happening.

the oldest logging isnt in the Debug I/O window when script is finished. i switched to using an external console, seems like an OK workaround. thanks.

Sounds like some output is lost. Do you know if it's there initially and then truncated or just never shows up? I'm suspecting the latter and we'll look into it. Thanks for reporting this problem.

i'll disable external console and watch to see if truncated or always missing. thanks!
