Feature request: word wrap

11 February 2020 - 09:46 PM

We have some documentation in Markdown format checked-in alongside our source code. We wanted to review those Markdown files in Swarm. Our files are written without embedded line breaks, instead relying on the text editors to automatically wrap the lines. Sadly, Swarm dutifully displays these as very long lines.

It would be nice to optionally enable word wrap in Swarm. I recognize that this might be a challenge for the diff algorithm, but it would be nice for dealing with plain-text files in Swarm.

Our workaround was to dump the content into a Word doc and then use Word's "track changes" completely outside Swarm.
