Very wide table rows truncated in edit mode

Steps to reproduce

(This bug appeared after upgrading from v0.12.19 to v0.13.19)

  1. Use the legacy editor

  2. Create a markdown table (I needed multiple columns and a separator row “|----|----|” for it to render in a monospace font)

  3. Fill one of the content cells with a very long string

  4. Observe that you cannot scroll far enough right to see the end of the line in the editor

Expected result

I expect to be able to see the end of the line in order to edit it.

Actual result

The end of the line is not visible when scrolled all the way to the right.

Additional information

does it happen in the new editor source mode or live preview?

Just to be clear: I’m using the legacy editing mode. The long lines extend past the visible area in edit mode, but the full text appears as expected in reading mode. That’s what I was trying to show in the screenshots above, but I can appreciate that it’s not easy to see.

This is unlikely to get fixed if it doesn’t happen in the new editor.
