TextPad word wrap (5)
Jan 09, 2006
I've been using TextPad ever since it came pre-installed on my school laptop 5 years ago. The program is very simple and easy to use. It's basically just a text editor, but its most significant feature in my opinion is its right-click integration. You can right-click on pretty much any file on your computer and open it in TextPad, whether it's a text file, an html/js/php file, an exe file, or a jpeg file. Really anything.
One problem that I encountered and have been dealing with is the fact (or so I thought) that you couldn't turn on word wrap by default. There's a little button on the toolbar that does it, but I always had to click on that to enable word wrap. But then I found this link that said, "Click on Configure > Preferences. Under 'Document Classes' on the left, click the '+' button and then choose 'Default'. You should see the default preferences for files show in the right-side of the pane. Make sure 'Word wrap long lines' is checked and hit 'Ok'." I tried it and it sort of worked, but I fooled around with it and found that if you make sure that the box is checked for each of the document types, it'll work all the time. So that's what I did and it worked great. #technology
Thanks! I've been wondering about this for a long time, I'm glad someone else found a decent way to force TextPad to wrap long lines by default. You rock!
Haha! Very cool...this has been buggin me for a long time and today I finally decided to google it and see if there was a fix. I hated having to always click that wordwrap icon on every document!
Thanks again, peace
I'm with new company and with their polisy I cannot access "Program Files" Directory where TextPad allocated all SYntax Files. Do you know how I can point TextPad to different file location
Sorry, I have no idea.
