Hi! First of all, I'd like to apologize in case anything reads weird, English is not my first language. I made this account just to try to fix this problem. I searched the forum, but I couldn't find anything about it. Maybe my search terms didn't help, but, anyway, my search was unsuccessful. I thought it was more prudent to make a more direct topic (even more so because the message at the beginning of the original topic says that the plugin is not under maintenance).

Anyway, I'm using this plugin: https://forums.rpgmakerweb.com/inde...pad-in-game-text-editor-for-the-player.91259/

I found two problems with the plugin. In the attached image, it shows the way the notepad looks. I overlapped the blue and red bars to indicate the problem: the text "escapes" from the window, you type and it keeps writing without limit or border.

The problem with the blue bar (the text going infinitely to the right) I managed to fix.

I changed the code
Window_NotepadDetails.prototype.initialize = function(x, y, width, height) {
Window_NotepadBase.prototype.initialize.call(this, x, y, width, height);
this._row = 0;
this._maxLength = 0;
To
Window_NotepadDetails.prototype.initialize = function(x, y, width, height) {
Window_NotepadBase.prototype.initialize.call(this, x, y, width, height);
this._row = 0;
this._maxLength = 78;

I counted the characters from left to right and by trial and error I got the text to the limit. No automatic line break or anything like that, but it is something.

Now the problem is in the red bar.
As you can see from the image, from line 15 the text is cut off. I don't expect to have infinite scrolling in the window (I don't even know if it's possible) and I don't mind that each note has 14 lines. But it bothers me that the text is cut out.

I believe the problem is here, but I have no idea what to do to fix it.
Window_NotepadDetails.prototype.newLine = function() {
var nextLineString = this.text[this._row].slice(this._index);
this.text[this._row] = this.text[this._row].substr(0, this._index);
this.text.splice(this._row + 1, 0, nextLineString);
this._row++;
this._index = 0;
this.refresh();

Here's the code part in full context.

//=============================================================================
// Window_NotepadDetails
//=============================================================================
// This window contains the details of the note.
//=============================================================================

function Window_NotepadDetails() {
this.initialize.apply(this, arguments);
}

Window_NotepadDetails.prototype = Object.create(Window_NotepadBase.prototype);
Window_NotepadDetails.prototype.constructor = Window_NotepadDetails;

Window_NotepadDetails.prototype.initialize = function(x, y, width, height) {
Window_NotepadBase.prototype.initialize.call(this, x, y, width, height);
this._row = 0;
this._maxLength = 78; //changed (was 0)
};

Window_NotepadDetails.prototype.newLine = function() {
var nextLineString = this.text[this._row].slice(this._index);
this.text[this._row] = this.text[this._row].substr(0, this._index);
this.text.splice(this._row + 1, 0, nextLineString);
this._row++;
this._index = 0;
this.refresh();
};

If anyone can throw a light and help me solve this problem, I will be infinitely grateful. Again, I apologize if something got lost in translation.

edit 1: added one image without the color overlap to help see
edit 2: added some prints with a clean project doing the same thing
edit 3: gdrive was being a pain, here is the link to the clean/stripped demo with the edited plugin
edit 4: just noticed that in the demo it brings back the right side (blue bar) problem because the font is bigger :frown: but it's not a big deal, i guess

I'm using the same plugin and ran into the same issue. I've posted it to a game dev discord to see if anyone knows, and I've contacted the creator. If anything comes out of this, you'll be the first to know.

Lately, I've taken to smashing random nouns/verbs together as insults. It's sort of amusing how many people don't really know how to respond to that. You bottle shaker!
Would be nice to pick color code that is not exclusively for message event
