OutputSizeLimit

OutputSizeLimit
is an option for notebooks which specifies the maximum size in bytes of expressions that will automatically be output in their entirety.
  • OutputSizeLimit is more often set at the level of stylesheets than individual notebooks.
This produces output that is somewhat lengthy:
In[1]:=
Click for copyable input
Out[1]=
Set the OutputSizeLimit to be rather small:
In[2]:=
Click for copyable input
Now the same output as before is shown in a shortened form:
In[3]:=
Click for copyable input
Out[3]=
This resets the OutputSizeLimit option to its global setting:
In[4]:=
Click for copyable input
  • Short and Shallow Output
