Slickedit inserting lines while typing/editing - PLEASE STOP
« on: February 13, 2014, 04:59:13 pm »
I cannot make a line more than 80 characters long in Slickedit. Slickedit keeps inserting lines (actual carriage returns, not line wrapping).
Example: When typing:
Quote
<p> <img alt="This is some text to make the line more than 80 chars so it will wrap around" /> </p>

When I get to 81 characters, it inserts a line break and indent after the <img , like so:
Quote
<p> <img
  alt="This is some text to make the line more than 80 chars so it will wrap around." /> </p>

I don't want that line break. If I place the cursor after the <img and hit backspace, it only moves the line break:
Quote
<p> <img alt="This is some text to make the line more than 80 chars so it will
  wrap around." /> </p>

I can go back and forth trying to delete it but to no avail. I cannot make a line more than 80 characters long.
This is unbelievably frustrating. I don't need to tell you that this makes me want to kill my computer as well as everything that has ever lived.

Each tag can have independent different word wrap settings.  Check the settings specifically for the <p> tag, for instance.

Oh my dear sweet Lord Jesus Christ.
Thank you.
I realized while following your advice that there's also a "Follow the style of" option on each separate tag, and all I had to do was update those several alternate defaults.
