If I try to pretty-print an ordered dictionary, it doesn't show nicely. Instead of having each key-value pair on its own line, the whole thing shows up on one long line, which wraps many times and is hard to read.

I can provide an example if you want.

Is there a way to make it print nicely, like the old unordered dictionaries?

I’m afraid there is no way, but a robust solution will be designed.  See #7434.

I forgot to mention, someone came up with this suggestion ( It is not the best, but the output is better than how it is now. Can it be somehow integrated into the PrettyPrinter.format method?
