I usually use Notepad ++ for coding, but recently I started doing some writing in it as well. Writing usually implies long paragraphs with no line breaks, and those are displayed in one row, which is extremely inconvenient. How do I "fix" this? I believe that the option is called "split lines" in Gedit.
