This guide will show you how to enable line wrapping in Visual Studio Code. This is extremely helpful when you want to see all of the code in your document. Alternatively, you might not use line wrapping if you do not want to see all of the long lines of code that can take up unnecessary space. Especially if not relevant to what you are working on!
As you can see in the example below, the code is very long and we can not see all of the HTML.
First we will select
File in the main menu, then navigate to
On the left hand side make sure you are in the
user tab. You will also see that
Commonly Used is highlighted.
Head to the
Word Wrap setting and turn it to
Word Wrap was not in your
Commonly Used section you can search for it in the search bar.
Now that the word wrap is on we can see that the really long line of HTML that was previously not showing everything has now wrapped to the lines below. If you look closely you will also notice that the line numbers are
99 . When we see the empty line number it means that it is a continuation of the line above it.
As you can see it was easy to enable line wrapping in Visual Studio Code. Do you prefer having line wrapping on? Start the conversation below!
