  • Word Wrap Support

    Word wrapping is a handy part of any editor, and this feature makes the reading and writing experience effortless. If you enable this functionality, you will no longer need a horizontal scrollbar when there is a long row exceeding the SyntaxEditor visible area. Instead, the text will be automatically moved to the next line, improving the customer experience.
