The line of code is too long

    It's atm not supported. (But that feature is on the to do list.)

    No word wrapping in a text editor - this is really important - how far up the todo list is it ?

  • MikeKrgerMikeKrger DEXamarin Team, Beta Xamurai

    In fact this item is not very far up the todo list - but - it's something that currently gets implemented :)
    There will be huge changes in the editor to improve the editing experience. Word wrapping is just one of the things the editor will get - but it will take 8-9 months for the whole package to finish :/

    How is things going with implementing "word wrap"?

    Can we expect the feature anytime soon?

    Since 2014 and still wow no word wrap at all ... that is a bummer!
    This is a feature that is implemented in other 'text editors' ever since.

    I'm sorry, but this is ridiculous. Move it up the prio list and finally end convenience implementations. You don't need to reinvent the wheel here.

    Is this still not implemented or am i just missing some option somewhere?
    Even worse: i am using a logitech wireless mouse mx master with horizontal and vertical scroll wheels. as soon as i use the horizontal scrollwheel the vertical one stops working :disappointed:

    It's kind of funny that a text editor or IDE does not have a essential feature such as Word Wrapping. :D

    Why is this not implemented yet? It is a very crucial and much needed feature!! It's been 6 years!!!!!!

    @Rob97 This is an old thread. Word wrap is supported in the new editor in Visual Studio for Mac. Go to Preferences - Text Editor - General - Word wrap

    @mattward I'm using a windows Visual Studio. How can I enable word wrap? I know for entry it's simple any attriubute that you set to true as "wordwrap = true". How would I do that for the Editor?

    Edit: Oh sweet! It seems to word wrap automatically!
