<<Some-WikiWord>> should be regarded as a whole word instead of splitting apart. When <<Some-WikiWord>> appears at the end of a line after wrapping, chances are it will be splitted into:

some sentence that is really long... <<Some-
WikiWord>>

This breaks the original visual effect. The angle brackets got displayed instead of serving as meta/escaping characters.

    This is nearly impossible to fix because the word-wrapping is done by the underlying editor component (Scintilla) and is out of control of WikidPad.

    Oh, if that's the case then leave it. It's not a serious problem though. Because there's a work around: shorten the range that the angle brackets covers.

    Some-<<WikiWord>>

    Thanks.

    This is hard to fix. The word wrapping is done by the underlying Scintilla editor component. Its behavior can't be changed currently.

    Oh, I have repeated myself. Just forget last comment, sorry.
