Auto-return when in plain text mode


I use Atom for coding as well as to write small text documents, drafts etc.
Unfortunately the text doesn’t automatically return on a new line and I am forced to go back and forward to read what I have written. I understand that is a possibly a correct while in a dev language mode, but it shouldn’t when in plain text (or markdown as well).


Are you looking for hard returns to be automatically entered in the text, i.e. “hard wrap”? Or are you looking for the text to just stay within the bounds of the window, i.e. “soft wrap”?
