Hi, I just noticed that very long lines cannot be seen completely: the horizontal scrollbar allows to scroll right only partially, some part of the line always stays off the screen.
 For now I avoided the problem by using "Word wrap" in settings.

Is it bug or I misconfigured something?

CB version is last trunk, Linux, gtk3

Can you show a screenshot?
GTK3 has this overshoot (or whatever is called) feature where it has some feedback when you reach the end of the scrolling control.

If you really want to use cb for actual work and not bother reporting all the issues I advise you to switch to gtk2. You'll have to move the -9999 ebuild to your custom overlay and change the required toolkit version to gtk2. I'm using this config daily and it is a lot more stable.

GTK3 is really in a rough shape at the moment (both wx (especially 3.0.4) and cb are full of bugs when using this backend).

So, the horizontal scrollbar is max to the right, and big chank of the line is not visible

OK, seems like another gtk3 related issue. :(

Logging an issue about this would be helpful when we start fixing these...

I think this is an issue we already suffer from for years.

And i also think that problem exists on Windows. And i dont think it is exclusive to CodeBlocks, i think it also happens in wxFormBuilder.

I cannot reproduce this with gtk2 builds...
