Word wrap in HTML editor (option to turn on/off)

Hi Yola. A good feature would be to have a word wrap in the HTML editor. This is because when I have long codes i have to scroll left to right and it is hard to code that way. I like having is wrapped so it goes to a new line if you type over instead of scrolling left to right. I am sure this could easily be implemented with a script or a HTML attribute or something. It would be also cool if it had a check mark (like in the preferences in the site builder) to turn it on and off. I am sure some people prefer to have no word-wrap, but, it is good when you have very long scripts that your are adding to your page. (If it is very long where it will slow the page's loading time, I just put it into a file using DreamWeaver and then I save it as a .js file and upload it to my file manager)

By the way, I really like the HTML editor! I don't know who started a topic about the HTML editor being the worst, but it is the best to me! :) It changes colors to organize the HTML, it has cool zooming effects, and it has lots of other features that lots of other website builders just have regular text without coloring it. I am glad there is an HTML widget and I am glad it is the way it is!

Thanks,
Nathan

Thanks Brianna. On Weebly, they have a HTML widget but it doesn't even almost compare to Yola's! Yola's blows their's away by 100%! :)

Best Regards,
Nathan

Hi Nathan

I do agree with you that a word wrap feature on the HTML editor would be a very welcome addition. Thanks for the feedback - I have never used Weebly.

I would greatly appreciate this as well. I use Apple's "magic mouse" and am constantly swiping left too hard, and it takes me back a page while i'm in the middle of editing code. Insanely frustrating.

Please give us the option for word wrapping in the editors.
