I'm using Code to view and edit tab separated files, composed by long entries. When Code breaks the lines, it messes with my view of the file. How can I turn off text wrapping?

This is currently not possible. The feature was removed in this PR: https://github.com/elementary/code/pull/73

After feedback, I think it was agreed to bring it back (discussion here)

I've just submitted the necessary code changes to bring it back here so hopefully it will make it into the next update of Code.

Edit: This option has now been restored.

  • Well thank you for that. I hope it gets implemented, for the time being I think gedit is a good alternative. Commented Nov 17, 2018 at 23:19
