Latest version: 1.9.2. New in this version (full changelog):

VS-only release: Adds support for VS 2019.


Reformats code comments and other text to a given line length. For VSCode and Visual Studio.


Similar to wrap/fill paragraph in Sublime (alt+q) Emacs (M-q) or Vim (gq); but more powerful.


  • Re-wrap single & multiline comment blocks in many languages. Also configure settings per language.
  • Smart handling of contents, including java/js/xmldoc tags and code examples.
  • Can select lines to wrap or multiple comments/paragraphs at once (even the whole document).
  • Also works with Markdown documents, LaTeX or any kind of plain text file.


The main Rewrap command is: Rewrap Comment / Text, by default bound to Alt+Q.

Put the text cursor inside a comment line, block or plain text paragraph and invoke the command to wrap to the preset column (default is 80). You can also select just a few lines, or multiple comments in one selection.

Also available is an Emacs-style auto-wrap/fill mode.

See the Features page for more examples on how to use.


See the wiki for pages on configuring settings and keybindings.
