  • My patience is running thin with code formatting on Codidact. I've made this feature request before on Software Development only ([here](https://software.codidact.com/posts/278868)) but no reply.
  • We currently have 5 communities which definitely need to frequently use the code formatting feature: Code Golf, Electrical Engineering, Linux Systems, Power User and Software Development. It may also be a useful feature on other sites.
  • Currently codidact supports code formatting with size 80 characters wide, 13 lines long. I'm viewing Codidact with 2560x1440 resolution in the year 2022... how is this restriction of 80x13 at all sensible?
  • The vertical limit of 13 lines is particularly annoying. Increasing the width wouldn't hurt either - as a comparison, Stack Overflow seems to allow 90 characters long lines instead of 80, maybe they use a different font.
  • Notably, I'm not expecting to view or write code on a phone - I couldn't care less about how it looks on phones.
  • Can we please do better than this?
