    I just tested a few different editors on this BBS and on Nightfox's, and similar behavior happens in others. With further testing, it also doesn't seem to be a 100% thing that a final long paragraph will always be truncated in the quote window... but that seems to be the easiest way to make it happen in SlyEdit and FSedit.

    I just committed an update to DDMsgReader (and SlyEdit as well) for wrapping quote lines to make sure the quote lines are all available. On the other BBS you mentioned, I'd recommend they update to the latest DDMsgReader and SlyEdit.js once they're merged to the main branch in Synchronet's git repository.

    I've been using my message reader though, and now that I think about it, my message reader doesn't check for that option when writing QUOTES.TXT I'll have to look into where I can check that. I imagine I can check xtrn_area.editor[user.editor].settings for that?

    Thanks to both you and digital man for taking up the thread. I was starting to wonder if I had gone too "high up the chain" bringing it up to you developers... like it was just something that Sysops needed to deal with. I'm happy it looks like I actually helped.

    Thanks again for looking into it!

    when i was on fidonet and other nets, i would ask my feed for help.
    half of the time it was their fault anyways.

    It sounds like you might be using a 3rd party (Nightfox's) message reader which is doing the message quoting for you. Try this same thing on a diffe

    I'm posting this from Vertrauen, and the above is the last two lines available in SlyEdit... however, all lines were available to "list" when using no external editor. FSEditor on Vert also picked up the final lines.

    Many other messages with long concluding paragraphs DID work fine with SlyEdit on Vert, though... in fact, I tried about a dozen before coming back to this message to tell you I couldn't reproduce it on Vert. But this one did produce the behavior.

    How ironic that it was the very message where I was going to say that I couldn't reproduce it here.

    I have SlyEdit configured here on Vertrauen in SCFG with "Word-wrap Quoted Text" set to "No". Perhaps that needs to changes to "Yes".

    Thanks for bringing it up again. Somehow it was something I had rarely seen, but now that I was able to see it happening, I was able to make a fix.

    Thank you so very much! The bbs I'm on most installed the updates and the quote window problem is gone. Sorry it took so long to thank you (and you too digital man)... I was home for the holidays and bbs'ing is just something I seem to do regularly when I'm at my desktop. Never got into it on my tablet or other device.

    oh i do have a feature request.
    could you allow a user to turn it off if they choose? i'm a power user and i don't like to have it turned on in some cases. it would be good if a user's pref could be saved in a data file.

    also since you make so many updates maybe an auto-update feature?

    Turn what off?

    I don't think my updates are that frequent (especially for SlyEdit). I'm not sure the best way I'd make an auto-update feature for my mods..

    oh i thought this post was about the msg viewer. it's about slyedit.

    the msg viewer. i'd like to toggle it off sometimes.

    you have it check your server periodically and then update it.

    So, being able to let the user revert to the stock reader when desired?
    I think that could be doable, though perhaps a little weird. I could put a user option in DDMsgReader to turn it off so the BBS would use the stock reader, but then once the user is using the stock reader, the user would have no way to re-enable DDMsgReader unless there's a separate script to do so and the sysop adds an option to the menu for the user to do so.

    cant you just set a user flag, have it look for it when loading, and if
    the user wants it on, they get it. if they dont, it's off

    i stored a mod inside the read prompt so you could probably do something like that to toggle it.

    Probably. And for the user to be able to change that, there'd have to be some script or something that the user can run so they can toggle it.
