Minimum width of word-wrapped paragraphs?


When a user splits the editors vertically and narrows the secondary pane, there comes a point where paragraphs no longer wrap to the available column width. The content spills out of visibility and a scroll bar appears.

If the secondary editor window is being used for reference or copy-and-paste, I’d usually prefer to see every word in a narrow format, rather than a wide paragraph with hidden content and a corridor of white space beneath.

The editor appears to behave this way without regard to the document’s font size. It’ll even extend a phrase in a narrow window that it wraps in a wider window.

Any way to control the editor’s wrap cut-off point?
