Configure horizontal scrol in text areas for long text



We use Gherkin format to define our test cases that later are subject to test automation. Anyway, when we put them in the text area for the scenario steps, sometimes the tables with examples are quite large (long text, messages, etc.) and it is very difficult to read these when they wrap on a new line after they are saved.

My team would like to check if it is possible for us to apply some customisation or set up in any other way horizontal scroll for the text areas to make our scenarios more readable.

Thank you in advance!


Hi Monica,

If you use preformatted text/a code block, you should already be able to use horizontal scroll bars and you can format code blocks by adding 4 spaces in front of each line:



Thank you Tobias!



You are welcome, Monica!
