Description Joachim Reichel 2007-02-19 22:34:27 UTC
Version:           1.9.2 (using KDE KDE 3.5.5)
Installed from:    Debian testing/unstable Packages

While static word wrap is very useful in general, often there are situations in which one temporarily wants to disable static word wrap. Selecting Settings/Configure Kile/Editor/Editing, disabling, perform the desired action and then calling Settings/Configure Kile/Editor/Editing again and reenabling is quite cumbersome. Please provide a way to bind the on/off switching for static word wrap to a shortcut, a toolbar button or menu entry.
Comment 1 Alessandro Rossini 2009-06-08 22:51:11 UTC
Enabling and disabling static word wrap in Kate 3.2.1 (using KDE 4.2.1) requires to select:
Settings -> Configure Kate -> Editor Component -> Editing -> "Enable static word wrap"
This is annoying when editing certain kind of text-based source files, e.g. LaTeX sources, where paragraphs are typically word wrapped and verbatim environments are not.
While "Dynamic Word Wrap" and "Word Wrap Document" actions are available to be added to Toolbars and Shortcuts, the same is not possible with "Enable static word wrap". Is it possible to add "Enable static word wrap" to the list of action available in Toolbars and Shortcuts?

Best regards.

Hello I've added my maximum votes for this bug. Just like it is possible to switch dynamic word wrap on/off from the menu, please make the same available for static word wrap also. Note that while the dynamic word wrap setting is available from the View menu, the static word wrap setting should be available from the Edit menu. (See also my comments on Bug 191028.)

This bug is over five years old. I hope it is not too difficult to fix. Thank you all for your great work on KDE!

Comment 6 fire f. 2018-06-12 23:18:36 UTC
it is poss to ena/disa WW from toolbar or via a kateline


kaXte: dynamic-word-wrap on;
kate: dynamic-word-wrap off;

change kate:  to  "kaXte:"  or sth. to disable the line , or delete one of the lines to toggle

Kate will only search the first and last 10 lines for variable lines such as "kate: dynamic-word-wrap off;"
This is line 11

see https://docs.kde.org/trunk5/en/applications/katepart/config-variables.html
Comment 7 Jerôme Pouiller 2018-06-15 15:08:41 UTC
IMHO, solution suggested by fire f. is not sufficient to close the bug. Users want a shortcut, a toolbar button or menu entry.
Comment 8 fire f. 2018-11-19 09:08:14 UTC
there is a toolbar button, only it must be placed as visible manually.
