Options|Word Wrap

Select Word Wrap in the Options menu to toggle word wrapping on or off. By default, word wrap takes place at the right-hand edge of EditPad’s window. If you want the text to wrap at a certain number of characters, use the drop-down menu of the word wrap button on the toolbar. You can select one of a few commonly used line lengths, or define your own.

Note that “word wrap” is a file type specific setting in EditPad. If you change the setting through the Options menu or the toolbar, it is applied to the active file only. If you create a new file or open an existing one then EditPad uses the setting you made on the Editor page for the type of file you are creating or opening. Also, when you use File|Save As to save the file as a different file type, the setting for the current file changes to what you specified for the new file type.

If you change a file’s word wrap setting, EditPad Pro remembers that when you close and reopen the file if you tick “preserve file settings” on the Save Files page in the Preferences. EditPad Lite does not have this option.

Word wrapping is only used in text mode. In hexadecimal mode, use Options|Record Size.
