Text wrap in word processing programs is the feature that determines how text transitions from line to line. By wrapping, or “wrapping,” text, you tell the program where you want it to wrap or flow onto the following line. Most word processors have default text wrap settings, which users can adjust based on their needs and preferences.
Adjusting the text wrap setting may serve many purposes. For instance, creating documents with justified (aligned) text on both left and right margins requires selecting an option that justifies text.
Text wrap settings provide an additional method of controlling where text appears on pages, such as when creating newsletters. Select either left or right text wrap options from your text wrap list to keep all the text aligned on one side.
Text wrap makes reading long lines of text easier without scrolling horizontally, making reading non-lined text files (such as those created by some word processors) much simpler. This feature is especially beneficial when reading lengthy files without line breaks, such as those produced by word processors.
Text wrap is an indispensable feature of TextEdit that gives users complete control over how their text is presented. By default, TextEdit wraps text at the end of a line. However, users can adjust this behavior so it wraps at character or word levels for maximum readability. For instance, if there’s too much text to fit on one line simultaneously, they can change this setting so the words wrap instead and prevent text from running off their screen edge.
