By committing issue #189557 the new view hierarchy supporting line-
wrap is now turned on:

Integrated into 'main-golden', will be available in build
*201008170001* on
http://bits.netbeans.org/dev/nightly/ (upload may still be in progress)
Changeset: http://hg.netbeans.org/main/rev/ce3fdc2a824f

The line wrapping mode can be controlled by Tools->Options->Editor-
Quote:
Formatting->Line Wrap option and it's "Off" by default (can be set
to "After words" and "Anywhere").
Also the non-printable characters visibility can be set by menu View-
Quote:
Show Non-printable Characters.

If you encounter any serious error you may switch back to an old view
hierarchy by adding the following into netbeans.conf:

-J-Dorg.netbeans.editor.linewrap=false

We mark the entered issues related to line wrap by using "linewrap" in
status whiteboard field. Currently we track the following open issues:
http://netbeans.org/bugzilla/buglist.cgi?product=editor&bug_status=NEW&bug_status=STARTED&bug_status=REOPENED&status_whiteboard=linewrap&status_whiteboard_type=substring&order=bugs.priority%2Cbugs.bug_id

Thank you in advance for testing of this feature.

I'm not a devloper, but I am trying to update/change my current install so I can get word wrap working.

I went to http://hg.netbeans.org/main/rev/ce3fdc2a824f, as noted in the original post.

I understand HOW to make the changes, but I cannot FIND the files that need to be changed.

Where are they in the installed file hierarchy? (I have 6.9.1 installed)

Is there any documentation on how to apply changes to existing NB installations?

And if this solution is only for development builds, not final installations, is there any way to turn on line wrapping in my installation?

(Currently the the line wrap option in the editor is grayed out).

Any replies to MarieGale question? I have the same problem, can not set line wrap on, which is a basic feature I was used to in my previous editor. Am I really forced to scroll horizontally? No workaround?

Thanks a lot for any answers or suggestions.

Hello,

line wrapping should be available in dev builds. Can you please point to your build number where it
is not available?

Thanks,

David

Like MarieGale, I'm not a NetBeans developer, I'm a developer who intends to use NetBeans.
My build is:
NetBeans IDE 6.9.1 (Build 201011082200)

My question is about the IDE as a product: I'm a bit surprised that line wrapping was not built into the text editor from the beginning. Anyone knows the reason why?

Thanks a lot.

I am using the same version: NetBeans IDE 6.9.1 (Build 201011082200)

If there is a later build that should be installed to enable line wrapping, please let us know which one (and any details on downloading/installing).

Like David, I am not a NetBeans developer, but am trying to use NB to develop with.

Thanks so much - line wrapping would be a BIG help.
