To visually structure text or code with long lines, it’s necessary to show auto-wrapped parts of lines that start with spaces or tabs with “soft” indention (without adding spaces or tabs into the text/code after these auto-wraps) so that the auto-wrapped line-parts have the same visual white space amout as the beginning of the long auto-wrapped text/code line.
Without this feature, EmEditor is simply not sufficient for structured text or code (e.g. xhtml) with long lines.
To see how such a feature works, take a look at TextPad (or UltraEdit/UEStudio).
This is an excellent feature, indeed! Yutaka, thank you for implementing it!
I have one suggestion about this function. When long lines are indented just as other lines, it becomes difficult to tell from one glance is it a new line or not. When I write my code, I usually wrap its long lines, and all the parts intend one TAB more than the beginning of the line. For example:
char* value = “This is a very, very, very long line! So long, that I had “ “to wrap it to new line, and even that was not sufficient and “ “a third line became necessary”;
So, it would be very useful if EE allowed those auto-wrapped part of long lines indent not only the same indentation as the beginning of the line was, but one TAB more (or several spaces – of course, better if it were configurable).
