When I toggle line wrapping on/off, it doesn't actually change the line wrapping in my documents unless I close and reopen geany.I'm using Geany 0.10 release.

    In my mind this is a feature and not a bug. The line wrapping option in the settings is a general setting for newly opened files. Already opened files maybe have already be set to wrap lines or not and shouldn't be changed generally.
    On the other hand, one could say: if I disable the line wrapping in the general settings, I also want to disable it in all already open files. Nick, what do you think?

    I assume you were using the line wrapping setting in Preferences.
    This is a global setting used for new documents or when opening files. Geany gives each document its own line wrapping setting, so that you could have one document with wrapping and one without open at the same time. This is controlled with the "Document->Line Wrapping" menu item.

    So I think the behaviour you experienced is a feature, not a bug.
