Hard wrap text to window width #
Metapad has a handy feature called Commit Word Wrap which inserts carriage returns into text based on the current window width (the command to remove them is Unwrap Lines).
The same functionality was available in TextWrangler 4.0.1 (download) but removed as of 4.5. Here's how to use it:
- Edit > Text Options...
- Check "Soft wrap text" > "to window width" > OK
- Optional aesthetic change: TextWrangler > Preferences > Appearance > uncheck "Page guide at __ characters"
- Wrap text to the current window width: Text > Hard Wrap... > check "Window width" > Wrap
- Remove carriage returns: Text > Remove Line Breaks
