We’ve heard your feedback and we’ve been hard at work with improvements to the Expressive Output Window!
As a reminder, the new Output Window is currently in Beta and to enable it you can go to File > Beta Features > Expressive Output Window.
The biggest change is that we have gotten rid of the column formatting approach and are using regular plain text formatting moving forward. By using plain text without columns, the new Output Window has performance parity with the old one, so there shouldn’t be any more performance issues! (If there are, please let us know).
Some of the other changes include:
- Crash fixes related to performance
- Table formatting has improved
- You can now right click to copy tables from the output window
- Improved filtering to help view results
P.S. For best visual results, we recommend going into your Studio Settings and changing the Output font to a monospace font like Consolas.
Thanks so much for being patient with our work on this upgrade, and we hope you enjoy the new version!
