Thanks for your response. The View menu item works fine - it's just a nuisance to have to keep deselecting and reselecting to get words to wrap. Other sources indicate that the Preferences dialog used to include an option to make all files open with Word Wrap enabled and functioning. In fact, the user could select Word, Character, or None for this feature. My problem is that in v11 the option isn't available in Preferences. I'm trying to find out if the option in the Preferences dialog has been intentionally removed, or inadvertently lost. Are you using v11 and is the option missing in your Preferences dialog?
