Typing long text

Asked by Krunoslav Husak on 2008-05-30

Is it possible to change the do application to wrap the text to next line when writing long lines?

I'm writing a smssend-ng application for sending SMS messages. I also have written do plugin for smssend. ( ). Sending SMS messages using the do plugin is very easy and very useful. But, when the message is too long, it doesn't wrap to the next line instead it display ... at the end of the line ( ).

So, can it be done to display more than 1 line of text in do? Or do you have and other suggestion how to solve this?

Yes, long text handling is something we need to improve. Here are two things you can do for now:

1. I've changed the ellipsize mode to center so you can see what you're typing even when it passes the end of the window.

2. You can just send currently selected text -- people can type their messages outside of Do and send them with the "Selected Text" item.
