Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

Using the new code editor is very difficult when long strings of code can't be rendered on one screen. There needs to be a word wrap capability.

Quite easy to do with

session.setUseWrapMode(true);
session.setWrapLimitRange(120, 120);

It defaults to 80 columns it seems. There is also a hook to allow you to do this yourself:

I guess we can fight over whether or not this should be set by default.

It needs to be an option from the ui. I don't care if it is toggled by default or not.

Request for new functionality which wasn't there before => severity==enhancement

With aba51ef4f54de2de69ebbea246d34447e7ab5f96, you can now use a line wrap button in the toolbar to set wrapping vs. scrolling. We could argue about if the default should be inverted or not... But we can have a separate ticket on that.
