changing xed text wrap state [Solved]

Post by tacoz » Fri Aug 26, 2016 8:00 am

So how does one search for xed specifically? It's ignored!
Information
The following words in your search query were ignored because they are too common words: xed.
You must specify at least one word to search for. Each word must consist of at least 4 characters
However my real question relating to xed is about the ability to toggle text wrapping without having to go via preferences each time the state needs changing...
Is there a plugin or some config-tweak somewhere that could drive that state change more easily?

There is no such plugin which you are looking for. THere are other text editors which can have this facility. http://www.tecmint.com/best-open-source ... t-editors/
If I have helped you solve a problem, please add [SOLVED] to your first post title, it helps other users looking for help, and keeps the forum clean.

Thanks @deepakdeshp!

I was familiar with mousepad and leafpad (from previous versions)
I was hoping that xed wouldn't be the same as gedit in this regard
But it is what it is... so I'll continue on with mousepad as default
Leafpad is the lightest but there are one or two features with mousepad that make it worthwhile
(and keeping xed available for when a list needs sorting, etc.)

For making your search in the forum more effectively, use the method as described in this pinned topic, #1. You can improve this, if you install the FF-extension site search (technically the same method, but more convenient).
