Sometimes I want to print data and compare what is printed ou to what is in the screen, but the console is so big I can't see anything!!! I think a small console would be A LOT better. Maybe use a codeline tyo resize it?

>> Set console size 0,0 to 640,100

or something like this.

I know I can use draw text, but especially with viewports, it takes many minutes to prepare, and when I'm debugging, I change the variables being printed every 30 seconds! Also, draw text would only keep the LAST printed value and I want to compare with the older ones.

Console

If you leave the console open when your program ends, it won't come to the front when you print to it. It only comes to the front if it was closed and you try to print to it. Of course, that doesn't help if you actually want to watch the values rather than just log them to look at them later.

I'll add the console sizing commands to the todo list.
