Syntax highlighting is available through the Languages menu. Themes are also made available through the Themes menu.

Word wrapping can be enabled or disabled through the Preferences > Toggle Word Wrapping.

You can manage the editor using Chrome's developer tools console (hotkey F12), by accessing the editor variable.
