i bet it's set to 80
You got it.
How do I get this set persistently to the maximum or best practice?
I created a startup script, reference it, rebooted OSD and it seems to be working now.
This startup script requirement didn't seem to be in place a couple of versions back (maybe I am not recalling correctly).
Do you know why they changed this?
It seems that it would have made more sense to some users to allow use of the tools preferences area to configure this.
I'm not complaining but I have a lot of "users" around here that would understand that approach much better.
Thanks again for your help.
I explained it in the link - we're aiming to mirror SQL*Plus behavior. I think the default linesize there is 80 chars.
There are dozens, and now even more, options you can set. It would be a lil ugly and inefficient to do that via a login.sql script AND in the preferences.
As I re-read your post, you did explain it and it does make sense.
I'll be checking into that great blog of yours much more too. A great resource.
