Try to resize the application window (maybe).

Maybe you should turn the spellchecker on first?

Seems like you followed my advice :wink:

booooooo hissssss yourself.

You’ve had three hours to answer Carlos’ question and you’ve just shown
that you’re online, so you clearly don’t really care about an answer.
But I’ll have a guess:

dynamic wrap probably uses ‘dynamic programming’ to find the wrap
points. static wrap probably doesn’t. Look on wikipedia for more
information about word wrap and dynamic programming.

Since you have not said what program you are using, I am making a wild guess here.

I think “dynamic word wrap” means that the display of the file content on the screen wraps at word endings but the text in the file is not actually wrapped, while “static word wrap” actually wraps the text in the file.

I’m guessing that you are using “kwrite”.

don’t think that is it. dynamic wrap applies the wrapping on-screen only,
while static wrapping actually inserts line breaks into the text.


phani.

Liar. You clearly were at the computer since you posted a response. But
you thought it more important to send a snide remark to one comment than
a factual response to a question meant to help you.

The funny thing about that comment, is that spell checker would not have helped. So he mistakenly used “warp” instead of “wrap”. But “warp” is a valid word that spell checking would be unlikely to catch.

(Ok, that was an off-topic comment. I think I gave the correct answer in post #8 of this thread.)

Let’s everyone CALM DOWN and stop with the name-calling and personal
attacks.

Thanks.

I’m just using dynamic

thanks

Good point. Of course I wouldn’t normally comment on spelling anyway, it was just that two minutes earlier I read a query by the same OP in another thread that was incomprehensible without guessing at the correct spelling and had not had received a response, presumably for that reason.
