How to automatically start new line at 80 character guideline?


I’m new to Atom so I imagine there is a simple answer to this but I have yet been unable to find it. I would like to have the editor automatically start a new line at the 80 character mark, so when I’m typing or when I paste a block of text I don’t need to manually break up the long, horizontal line of text. Is there a way to do this? Toggle Soft Wrap doesn’t seem to be doing the job.

Thank you!


No, there currently isn’t anything for this built-in to Atom. You may want to check the package listing to see if there is anything there.
