Re-opened because all output is truncated which is different to bug #53189, where only the startup message is truncated.

The whole output is truncated, not just the startup message.

Is only the startup message truncated or really all output as indicated in the original submission?

Looks to be a duplicate of bug #53189

Octave versions 4.2.2 and 4.4.0.
OS Windows 10

Actual output: all output in the command window is truncated at 36 characters. See attached screenshot of the startup message. This happens with any output to the Command Window, not just the startup message.

Expected output: full output is visible.

Note 1: this works correctly in the cli version of Octave on Windows.

Note 2: This also works correctly on my linux installation of Octave (in the GUI).
