Hi there,

does anyone know a simple way to switch wrapping mode off in Textedit?

Do not wrap to window, do not wrap to page, do not wrap to nothing.

I like Mac's policy of not outsmarting the user, but this wrapping tyranny is a bit of a disappointment.

I need to view quickly large ascii files with data records where every column (comma or space separated) is a variable, on wrapped mode is a mess, temperature becomes wind, wind humidity and so on.

Or is there any other [free] text editor available (I am using Xcode at the moment, for lack of anything better)

It would also be nice to turn wrap off in Safari. I have switched to firefox because of that.

many thanks,
