Toggle Text Wrapping, a plugin for gedit

Quickly toggle text wrapping from the View menu or Toolbar
https://github.com/jefferyto/gedit-toggle-text-wrapping
0.3.2

All bug reports, feature requests and miscellaneous comments are welcome at the project issue tracker.

Requirements

0.3.0 and higher requires gedit 3; gedit 2 users should use 0.2.0 by Christian Hartmann.

Installation

  1. Download the source code (as zip or tar.gz) and extract.
  2. Copy the toggletextwrapping folder and the appropriate .plugin file into ~/.local/share/gedit/plugins (create if it does not exist):
    • For gedit 3.6 and earlier, copy toggletextwrapping.plugin.python2 and rename to toggletextwrapping.plugin.
    • For gedit 3.8 and later, copy toggletextwrapping.plugin.
  3. Restart gedit, select Edit > Preferences (or gedit > Preferences on Mac), and enable the plugin in the Plugins tab.

Usage

To toggle text wrapping for the current document, either:

  • Select View > Enable Text Wrapping;
  • Click the checkmark button in the Toolbar; or
  • Use the Ctrl+Shift+B keyboard shortcut.

Note that this only affects the current (active) document; text wrapping for documents in other tabs and/or windows will be unaffected, and the global text wrapping preferences will remain unchanged.

Development

The code in toggletextwrapping/utils comes from python-gtk-utils; changes should ideally be contributed to that project, then pulled back into this one with git subtree pull.

Parts of this plugin are based on the work of Mike Doty mike@psyguygames.com who wrote the infamous SplitView plugin. The rest is inspired from the Python Plugin Howto document and the Python-GTK documentation.
