Try using stacked instead of side-by-side @OverlordNS , maybe it will work...

Uh... you do know that the area is resizable. You can literally resize it.

@Muhammad_SJC yes i know, the width is resizable but the bottom half of my console isn't showing properly (I can't resize the high) and i thought you had the same issue as me

Muhammad_SJC (118)

@BastianMuratory Go to the bar on the left and click settings,. Then go to view and change the view to see if anything changes

Muhammad_SJC (118)

@OverlordNS No never mind it doesn't work

OverlordNS (7)

@Muhammad_SJC is there anything i can do

OverlordNS (7)

This has been happening to multiple people @Muhammad_SJC and @BastianMuratory, it's probably a bug. (I have reported it)

Another thing you can try is clicking on the repl's name and selecting spotlight page. It makes it the view that non-editors see.

I sometimes use it for when I just want to play my games, not edit them.

Happens to me to. I believe repl.it uses HTML Canvas? File a bug report at repl.it/bugs

BobTheTomatoPie (3199)

uhh, its in html but that doesnt mean it is using a canvas tag @tussiez

@BobTheTomatoPie uhm all the text is in <span>s

BobTheTomatoPie (3199)

<span> is not a <canvas> tag @tussiez

BobTheTomatoPie (3199)

oh i thought you were the one saying it was canvas mb @tussiez

Hey @OverlordNS sorry you're running into this issue and thanks for letting us know.

We just pushed a potential fix so it should be working fine now but please let us know if you're still experiencing this issue.

seems that the console just has a limit to how many characters it can have before it wraps. It's not really expected that you would need that much room.

I've reported it (here)[https://repl.it/bugs/p/consle-size-in-cut-in-half] @OverlordNS

the console is just like that, nothing to do about it.

actually I think i have the same issue as you, i just oppenned a question about it :/
Hope you can find an issue too, i find it very annoying :/

@Muhammad_SJC Half of the console is unused in the repl.

Muhammad_SJC (118)

@TommyVictory hmm... I have never encountered an error like that. Perhaps replit is bugging. If you can't use replit to code I prefer Visual Studio Code. It is like replit but 1000 times better. I usually make my programs in Visual Studio code and then just paste it onto replit.

@Muhammad_SJC
I will try visual studio code then. Thank you for the advice !

Muhammad_SJC (118)

@TommyVictory I don't know how to fix it, but I think I know what it is. The console was resized, but the console did not realize that it was now longer and bigger, so it only shows commands that fit in its previous height.

Muhammad_SJC (118)

@BastianMuratory also be careful when downloading it. you need to download "Visual Studio Code" not "Visual Studio". A lot of people make that mistake. If you download visual studio, it has nothing related top the languages we code in. Plus the visual studio code logo is blue, and the visual studio logo is purple. So just be careful.

@Muhammad_SJC
I'll try to find if i can resize it again, the wierd thing is that I have this issue in all my other repl.it ... so it must be an issue with my account

Muhammad_SJC (118)

@BastianMuratory Then try creating a new account. You don't have any cycles so it won't make much of a difference. (no offense)

@Muhammad_SJC
I tryed to change the layout but it didn't solved the issue, I noticed that the shell is working normally so my issue is only with the console :/
I wish i could keep my account as i have an hacker rank (premium i think) and it would be better if i could keep it xD
