I’ve been doing quite a lot of my php web development coding in netbeans lately and one of the thing that bugs me most is that there is no word wrap functionality in netbeans. I have a 24 inch lcd screen and configured screen resolution to 1920×1280. I wonder what will other developers do when they have a smaller screen and how do they work with an ide without word wrap such as Netbeans.
I’m not sure but I’ve also heard that Eclipse doesn’t allow you to view your code in word wrap? I’m not using Eclipse personally since I find Eclipse PDT or the Zend Studio plugin a bit tedious to configure when I tried it 2 years ago.
* The word wrap issue in Netbeans is a reported bug and is currently having a P1 (highest) priority to be fixed in 6.9. Since you’re here, don’t forget to also login and vote for it to be solved. More details here.
* Confirmed: Eclipse doesn’t support word wrap as well and it has been a heavily requested feature which has not been fixed or given any attention since 2003!
