Unusable side-by-side diff - horizontal scrolling

Resolution:Fixed Affected version:


The side by side diff is pretty much unusable because the code is neither wrapped when it's too long nor is the horizontal scrollbar anywhere reachable (there is one at the very bottom of the page for the div). You should either be able to scroll the entire page horizontally. That way you don't need to scroll all the way down to use the horizontal scrollbar but can scroll horizontally anywhere on the page using your browser. Or lines should be wrapped to not let this happen at all. For an example see

Well the demo link doesn't show it anymore as I removed class="autoscroll" from the div as I'd like to be able to use it ;-)

It was fixed in r1020. Diffs are now wrapped:

I think you can fix it manually by adding this to your css:

table.filecontent td.line-code pre {
    white-space: pre-wrap; /* CSS2.1 compliant */
    white-space: -moz-pre-wrap; /* Mozilla-based browsers */
    white-space: -o-pre-wrap; /* Opera 7+ */
