Is there a way to get stride to support larger code blocks?

Stride doesn't seem to be able to handle code blocks as well as HipChat.

In particular - it seems the length of the block is greatly restricted.

I don't know what the new limitation is - but I can tell it's less than Hipchat, cause I seem to always hit the limit in stride, and I rarely hit it in HipChat.

It's a pain, because you have to create a file and upload it instead of keeping the discussion inline which would be more convenient.

Anyone else hitting this issue?

Stride *is* largely for programmers, right? Give us more room! :)

Thanks. I've added my vote and comments to the request.

I'd advise anyone else who agrees to do the same.

I would *hope* that addressing this would just be a matter of changing a constant in the code - we just need to get Atlassian to prioritize the work!

You are most welcome! Fingers crossed on that one. :)

Hey Ahmad - that suggestion was created about 6 weeks ago, and hasn't even been "reviewed" by your product management folks. Any thoughts on when it will be - is there anything we can do to up the priority of someone even looking at it?

Hi, Paul.

To be honest, I don't have a specific say on that. Nevertheless, I have included a private comment to notify the development team to make them aware of this and hopefully, provide an update soon.

For reference, please refer to our feature request policy and let us know if you have any questions about it - Implementation of New Features Policy
