It is not configurable, though in 2.4.1 the max height has changed from
4 to 8 lines, which should be enough for code fragments. Please also
consider reading the Mailinglist archive for this and the devel list.
There has been some big discussions about the issue. If you have
anything new to contribute to these discussion, please do so.
@Pidgin-devs: While writing this mail, I tested the new max height
(Wanted to check if it has a hardcoded line maximum or if a percentage
value was used). Therefore I resized my window to a small height and
typed multiple lines. Result:
- If there are only the last two lines are shown (minimal height of the
message window), the window itself grows to the bottom (changing the
windows outer bound).
- If you move the window to the bottom of your desktop, it "grows" out
of the screen.
Is this the desired behaviour?
I'm on Windows XP, Pidgin 2.4.1, GTK 2.12.8 RevA
