Emacs: Setup Soft-Wrap Lines

By Xah Lee. Date: .

make lines NOT soft-wrap

emacs Alt+x toggle-truncate-lines

Alt+x toggle-truncate-lines.

When toggle-truncate-lines is on, lines runs off and disappears on the right window margin. You have to horizontal scroll right to see them. This is useful when you just want to get an overview of lines.

Note: the command name is misleading. It doesn't really “truncate”. Proper name would be “toggle-line-softwrap”.
