Pinned topic IDA 8.1 Comment fields do not size properly

‏2012-07-02T22:07:30Z |
I have upgraded from IDA 7.5.3. When resizing in 7.5.3, IDA would word wrap automatically and format the text to fit the box, or add scroll bars. IDA 8.1.0 doesn't word wrap and has messed up all my diagrams. This is a very poor piece of software.

    Hello Rob.

    As we st discussed. The issue met is against the Note Text . The reason is Note Text in IDA8l support Rich Text format , and rich Text format display need more space than plain text .
    An alternate way to solve this problem is navigate to preference page and disable the display rich text option .
    Preference path is : Modeling -> Text -> Display Rich Text on Diagrams

    Wish it helps

      Hi Tao

      As I said via st/email if you introduce new features, these should be disabled for migration and the user should be able to enable them as required. I had to update 100 diagrams to make many Notes fields readable as a printed artifact.

      The rich text Notes capability is not stable. I get the following issues

      1. Cannot go to end of field
      2. The cursor is not where the key puts chars (for example - if the cursor is behind a letter and you select delete, it sometimes deletes the letter in front of the cursor).

      These are just some of the problems introduced by Rich Text.

      Thanks for your time and effort in assisting me via ST.
      Rob

        Hi Rob.

        Thanks , So disable the rich text works for the issue in this topic .
        Rich Text is introduced in by outside of IDA, - that is the reason we could not disable it by ourself in 8.1, I could try to open request on this rich text -> rich text migration .
