I’m using MPS and see exceptions, how can I fix this?

The preview doesn’t show some remote images! Is this a proxy issue?

The JCEF preview doesn’t support the IDE’s proxy settings. See Proxy issues with the JCEF preview for more information.

Pasting from clipboard removes leading spaces (aka indent). Why?

This is an automatic reformatting option in the IDE’s settings. Stripping leading spaces should not change your rendered output.

See Indent missing when pasting from clipboard for more information.

How to avoid scrolling left/right for long lines?

An AsciiDoc recommended practice is to have one sentence per line.

The preview doesn’t show and in the notification I see “Errno::ENOENT message”.

This might be due to non-US-ASCII characters in folder names.

See Error Message Errno ENOENT and no preview for more information.

The preview could not find executable to render diagrams

Some diagram types need external helpers to render diagrams in the preview.

Something is not working as I expect it to work, where can I get help?

Please open an issue in the GitHub issues for this project.

Could not find the 'dot' (or other) executable. How to fix it?

Some diagram types need helper applications installed locally. Another alternative is to use a cloud based renderer like Kroki.
