When playing the game I get "journal updated" messages, that have a title and a block of text.

These seem to indicate a new journal entry, and when I press the message block the journal is opened up, showing that entry.

However it seems that some (actually most that are not direct quest updates) "journal updated" messages don't actually create journal entries, such as shown in my attached screenshot.

If these messages should be generating journal entries, then this is a bug.

If this is by design, then this is a feature request: whenever I'm given a "journal updated" message that contains a paragraph of story, a journal entry with the same text should be created for later reading.

This has been annoying when playing on a 4K monitor, as I like to read larger entries in the journal rather than in the popup window, as the pop-up window's text is very small and nearly unreadable at 4k without scaling turned on.
