Side-scrolling code blocks

Rather than wrapping text lines inside a triple-tick code block, I’d personally prefer if the text of just the code block were horizontally scrollable.

Do others feel similarly? Might this be a possible change or option?

Personally this is quite far into nice-to-have but not very important territory, but figured it hopefully doesn’t hurt to ask :slightly_smiling_face:

would love to make code blocks horizontally scrollable (you still have to use ```).

Unfortunately, it’s not super easy to do and we have other priorities before thinking about that :slightly_frowning_face:

I don’t have much to add at this time, but thank you for your feedback!

Understood — maybe one day! Thanks for the reply, Matteo :slight_smile:

Just adding my vote here to say that it is sometimes quite important! Bear not having a scrollable view makes some code totally unreadable, especially when viewing on a small screen, or when having the Bear window only take up half the screen (this is primarily how I use the app - since I’m taking notes on a certain thing). I’d go so far as to say that many serious programmers rule out bear for use for notes because of this alone.
