This would be significantly more readable if it didn't limit the width of the tooltip for no reason.

Which IDE and version of VA are you using?

Obviously the tooltips have to be wrapped at some point, to stop them becoming to wide, but this does seem far to narrow. I have set up a very similar context tooltip here, using VS2017 and VA 2341.2 in C++, and my tooltip is not being wrapped. So I am wondering if I am testing the same IDE and version of VA.

Are you seeing all context tooltips being shown this narrowly? Or does this only effect some of them?

I am using VS 2019 (latest) and VA 2431.

Yeah, it seems to happen for all context tooltips. Here's another example from the engine that is even less readable, in comparison to the available space:

This seems to be affecting all tooltips, like the ones on methods, not just the context ones. Very strange.

Interesting, this isn't quite as simple as it looks. I have reproduced this problem on one machine here, where it happens in VS2019 but not in VS2017. However, on a second test machine I cannot reproduce this in either IDE. It looks like some setting somewhere is a factor. Currently looking into this, to try and find this triggering factor.

Which version of VS2019 are you using? I am seeing the problem in VS2019 16.2.3 and not seeing the problem in VS2019 16.1.6, with the same VA and IDE settings. So it could be a version of VS2019 issue, or it could be a Windows 10 setting.

I am using 16.2.3, so that could be the cause.

Yes, confirmed, the only thing I am changing here is updating VS2019 from version 16.1.6 to version 16.2.3 and then the problem appears. I have put in a bug report about this:
