Follow-up Comment #8, bug #41842 (project octave):

If you could just always tell the terminal to have a line width of, say,
10000, and always have a scroll bar, in all cases, this would simplify things
for the gui. I tried to implement this myself a long time ago, but the
qterminal code is so complex I couldn't figure out how it works in a
reasonable period of time.

--the following rant can safely be ignored--

I still think a fixed width terminal isn't really required when you are
definately embedded in a gui. If anything it's a hinderance to printing out
nice tables and other output. In general I think qtterminal is over engineered
for the Octave gui's purposes. FreeCAD is based on Qt and has an embedded
python console which adds a scroll bar when required. If there was any
interest in changing, it could possibly be repurposed. It's also
cross-platform with the same implementation on both. There's probably a few
python consoles which could be repurposed.
