I'm extensively using nedit in my daily work -- coding
and writing papers and reports. It's a very nice tool,
and so easy to use.
The problem on the auto newline text wrap is that when
you type in the middle of a line, the line will not
wrap at the end even if it exceeds the margin. So every
time I have to manually make line breaks after adding
new texts in the middle of a line.
An improvement would be to automatically wrap the line
no matter where new texts are added on the line. And
as long as the user keeps typing on this line, the
wrapped words are automatically added at the beginning
of the following wrapped new line. Of course, if the
user leave the current line, the wrapped new line will
be treated as an independent line.
This small improvement is very helpful if a user
frequently adds texts in a middle of a line (like
revising papers and reports). It could save a lot of
time than manully make line breaks. I use pine to
read/write email, which actually uses pico as its text
editor. Pico has exactly the feature I described above.
