I’ve been a user of EmEditor for a while now and there’s always been one thing that niggles me – the way word wrap is implemented with indented text.

I really like to keep all my notes as .txt files, which means a certain amount of indenting takes place so that I can distingush sections. The problem is that EmEditor doesn’t handle word wrap particularly well on these indented section and, instead of the second sentence beginning below the first line (as in Word), it starts at the beginning of the next line:

e.g.

In Emeditor:
_______Text Text Text Text Text Text Text Text Text Text Text Text Text Text Text Text Text Text Text Text Text Text Text Text Text Text Text Text Text Text Text Text Text Text Text Text Text Text Text Text Text Text Text Text Text Text Text Text

Better:
____Text Text Text Text Text Text Text Text Text Text Text Text Text Text
____Text Text Text Text Text Text Text Text Text Text Text Text Text Text

(The underscores are meant to be a tab / blank space)

I realise that EmEditor is a text editor, rather than a word processor, but other editors (e.g. TextPad) handle word wrapping much more elegantly.

Any chance of this in EmEditor?

Thanks,

David

I believe this can be set by checking the “Wrap Indent” checkbox in the Tab/Indent dialog box (Configuration Properties > General tab > Tab/Indent button).
