Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

During chat, there is a rare occasion that one might see an exceptionally large chat message. To stop it from consuming everything, chat politely cuts it down and gives you a link to see the full text.

You can't do this through the transcript. At best, you can check the history, but this doesn't really cut the bill: the "current state" will still be truncated, and the "old state" will have lost all of the formatting.

Can we have the ability to expand a truncated message in the transcript?
