Console Preferences

The console displays output from running applications, and allows keyboard input to be read by running applications.

Option

Description

Default

Fixed width console

This preference controls whether the console has a fixed character width. When on, a maximum character width must also be specified. Some applications write long lines to the console which require horizontal scrolling to read. This can be avoided by setting the console to use a fixed width, automatically wrapping console output.

Off

Limit console output This preference limits the number of characters buffered in the console. When on, a maximum buffer size must also be specified. When console output surpasses the specified maximum, output is truncated from the beginning of the buffer. On
Displayed Tab Width Allows the default width, in characters, of a tab to be specified 8
Show When Program Writes to Standard Out This preference will force the console to show when something is written to the system out stream. A forced-show can mean that a console will be opened, or that the console will be brought to the top if it is already open. On
Show When Program Writes to Standard Error This preference will force the console to show when something is written to the system err stream. A forced-show can mean that a console will be opened, or that the console will be brought to the top if it is already open. On

Standard Out Text Color

This preference controls the colour of text written to the standard output stream by an application.

Black

Standard Error Text Color

This preference controls the colour of text written to the standard error stream by an application.

Red

Standard In Text Color
