Multiline's since 6.1

i have a little optical problem since patch 6.1

some addons make at once a 2 line text, instead of the previous one row and if are to length "..."

i see this on more addon's parallel, I think it's a new? setting in the main option

i see it for example on: PitBull4 (TargetName), ChocolateBar (GroupFinder), Skada (instantaneous fight titel)

Is anyone else noticed this problem? And how can I stop the whole? please help me...

- sry for my bad english -

> if you need picures, say it to me

This was caused by Blizzard actually fixing a long standing bug for FonStrings(strings of text) where it never word-wraps or shortens adding the '...'. You may have noticed this behavior in the zone name on the Minimap.

At least that is what I have read elsewhere.

Every addon that has fontstrings with more than one anchor (point) to force it into truncating needs to be updated to disable it's wrapping to make sure it still truncates.

This is indeed the end result after a long-standing bug fix with fontstrings that Blizzard corrected in 6.1.

The fix:
Code:
fs:SetWordWrap(false)

Where are those information from? The 6.1 patch notes don't even mention any changes at all. What exactly was fixed/changed with fontstrings?

Nothing in the patch notes related to it. Was on IRC with a Blizz Dev if i remember correctly.

I am having the same problems. Hopefully it is something they can hotfix.

No, it would need to be downloaded (not a server-side hotfix) since the change would need to be in the UI code.

I'll be updating BlizzBugsSuck this weekend with a (hopefully very temporary) fix for that problem.
