#1157 Word wrap in continuous text only


For continuous text it is pretty nice to have a soft word wrap function.
But due to the fact, that latex is also some kind of a programming/markup language, it would be very helpful to disable the word wrap only in equations or tables or command definitions.

I already read this ticket: https://sourceforge.net/p/texstudio/feature-requests/1109/
So if this feature would lead to huge internal reorganization of the code, I would suggest to introduce an ergonomic shortcut to toggle between global word wrap and no word wrap.

For large equations (and this is the key strength of latex) this would be really, really a great handy thing.

    not going to happen.
    This would result on a extremely complicated code which is not woth the effort.

    Sorry, after reading the linked ticket, I should have changed my ticket title to something more meaningful.
    I'm assuming you didn't even read the text because of the misleading title.

    My suggestion was, to include an option (per shortcut) to toggle between the already existing wraping options:
    Line wrap - No line wrap.

    This would speed up productivity enormously without adding much more complexity to the code.

    The request itself is reasonable, it would be useful for a number of other options as well. However it's not as easy as it sounds. Firstly, we rarely have left any reasonable shortcuts left, so just assigning shortcuts to various actions is not feasible. So one would have to make it configurable (which is currently only possible for menu entries). Then again we don't want additonal menus for all the options. Secondly, it's a bit more complicated than setting the value because the editor needs to be updated accordingly. This complicates a more general approach.
