Problem with debugger formatting in Java

Bug description:

Strings are overwriting other Strings in the debugger

Expected vs Current Behavior:

I expect each String to be visible, and not overwrite another String. What seems to be happening (this is a student’s code, but I don’t see why that should be a problem) is that it’s printing two Strings, one on top of another. The first is a single line; the other is a multiline array.

I tried resizing the font, rearranging the tabs, etc., but the value persists.

This is in Java.

Steps to reproduce:

Write code that has multiple String values, a single String and a 2D array of Strings. Break at a point where both are visible.

This is a student replit so … FERPA.

Hey @mprogers!

Thank you for reporting this. Is it possible for you to create minimum viable reproduction of the issue in a public Repl so we can test this internally?

I had to find the student in question: I’ve done that, so I will work on this.
