Duplicate Article Snippet Length

Article Snippet Length:
The maximum number of characters to display when viewing this forum. Use 0 to display the entire content.

I use preview mode. I had mine at 500 but tested at 0. The result was, boxes with images in them did not show entire content and still had a read more link. Boxes with no image showed the entire text creating huge boxes vertically. I don't think this "mixed" result is intended, only affecting non-image boxes.

Can you post a preview of what you are seeing because I think it fixed it for me.
.message--articlePreview .articlePreview-image+.articlePreview-text .bbWrapper { position: relative; max-height: 13em; overflow: scroll; }
Thats the code thats responsible for it and I just increased the max height
To reproduce simply use Preview mode in a forum with long articles, and some have article images some don't. Set the snippet length to 0 for entire content. Entire content is only shown in those w/o images. Those w/images are snipped near the default number.

PS. It's not just 0. Any high number, like 1500 and the articles with images are snipped way lower, like the XF default (300-400?).
