#3557 closed Defect (Works for Me)

Main window buffer to short; can never see Highlight words

Reported by: casemon@… Owned by:
Component: Colloquy (Mac) Version: 2.4 (Mac)
Severity: Blocker Keywords: scroll buffer too short


I leave Colloquy running all day, staying in channels that have moderate activity. Sometimes am active, sometimes am away.

Also have several highlight words specified in Preferences.

Basically, every time a highlight word is mentioned, i get an icon alert, but by the time i return to Colloquy, that part of the conversation is gone eaten up by the main window scroll buffer; ergo the main window scroll buffer is too short.

Sure i could go through all transcripts and try to make sense of it but that is very tedious and a poor user experience; basically this issue makes the Highlight Word feature worthless and BLOCKS me from using it effectively.

Understanding some people have slow scrolling speed with large window buffers, please allow the user to specify the buffer length. I have a fast machine, so scrolling speed is never an issue.

Thanks for considering.

You can already change the scrollback length; Preferences -> Behavior -> Message Scrollback.
