Increase console output size in Intellij idea

I’ve found that in the eighth release of idea IDE, the “Limit Run/Debug Console Output” setting is gone so actually the only way for increasing the console output size is to set the idea.cycle.buffer.size value in idea.properties.

    Thanks, Germano! This tip is still helpful for IntelliJ IDEA 10.5.

    Bravo! Truncated console output has been causing me problems for some time, but, to my amazement, I couldn’t find any setting to regulate it in the IntelliJ IDEA interface, nor any mention of such a setting in its help. Until the JetBrains folks have the good sense to restore this setting to the GUI, your tip is indispensable.

    Thanks a lot. I always found the console way too limiting. And easily increasing it through Settings is just impossible. I wonder why, its such a (much used) feature imo.

    In Idea 11, this appears to have moved into the Info.plist fie

    IntelliJ IDEA 11.app/Contents

    There’s already a value assigned, so don’t create a new entry.

      in my installation ( 11 under linux) it seems the tip is still valid.
      I haven’t found the info.plist file… Where is it?

        Ah, I should have been specific — I’m talking about Idea on OSX.

        The file is here: IntelliJ IDEA 11.app/Contents/Info.plist

        I can’t find a file called idea.properties anywhere…

    I should have been more specific me too, thank you for your reply.
