Probably an easy question but my googlefu is weak. How do I change the number of characters per line for konsole?

Just grab the side of the window and stretch it and the number of chars per line will increase. A popup will show a running display of the dimensions in chars.
Totally didn’t notice it did that. However, the length of the line still isn’t as long as I would like. Can I add a horizontal scroll bar (this is called a buffer right?)?
I don’t remember ever seeing a horizontal scroll bar in konsole. I would find that very frustrating to read, I’d rather have folded lines. Maybe make your font smaller?
Now that I look at it, folded lines are pretty cool too. Thanks for the help guys.

Never seen a h-scroll bar, but you could grab the window, move it almost
off screen on the left, then grab the right side and make it longer.
You can end up w/a terminal wider than your screen. You’d have to
‘scroll’ by grabbing the top and moving the window to the left or right.
If it’s a file you can open it in an editor of course. Pretty easy to
capture output to a file too, if that’s what you’re trying to view.
Not perfect solutions, but hopefully that’s of some help…
