Identify the Bug

Fixes #18195

Description of the Change

This change fixes an issue introduced by #17949 where new soft-wrapping behavior was causing spaces and forward slashes / to be wrapped to the next line:

This change resolves the issue by changing isWordStart to consider - and / as non-word characters instead of the approach that was taken in #17949.

Alternate Designs

The alternate design in #17949 caused unwanted regressions in text wrapping.

Possible Drawbacks

Could cause unexpected wrapping behavior for some users since we haven't soft-wrapped on these characters before in the past.

Verification Process

  • Soft-wrapping on -, /, and (space) operates similarly to other editors like TextEdit (see screenshot below)
  • CI specs pass
