I don't want the comment box to grow!

Apr 02 2011 | 3:37 pm

I’m using a comment box to display the filename and other characteristics of the file in my buffer; it’s being used in presentation mode and so its placement is very specific. I don’t want the box to grow (or the text to wrap) if the text happens to be longer than what the space allows for.

Is there any way to tell the comment box "only allow x number of characters and if x is exceeded then forget about the rest"?

You could use a mostly transparent [textedit] object instead of [comment].

Yes! Why didn’t I think of that… :)
