Is there a word wrap feature for hipchat?

I like my hipchat roughly in the bottom right corner while I work. Other screens butt right up against it. But when someone types something too long, I have to stretch the hipchat window open to read it all. It seems to have a mind of it's own on what goes down to the next line and "word wraps" and what doesn't.

Hi Charles.

"Word wrap" is available by default in all clients, as there should not be an option for you to scroll conversations horizontally.

As an example, here's how word wrap would look like in a compressed client with sidebars displayed.


Let us know if that's not what you're seeing on your HipChat client. Some screenshots would definitely be useful in telling what you're seeing. 🙂


Thanks for the reply. It turns out. If I have the "hide the sidebar" selected, it doesn't word wrap. But if the sidebar is selected as visible, it does. So I can just resize the window & slide the window far enough off screen so the sidebar doesn't show. Then I do not have to stretch the screen to read the full post, it will wrap like I wanted. Ty for the reply.
