Soft wrap support, but only for Markdown?


I was wondering if there’s a way to configure “Soft Wrap at Preferred Length,” but only for Markdown files? I like to have my prose neat and tidy in one column, but don’t mind my code to run past the line length occasionally.

Thanks in advance!

How do I turn off soft wrap?


Make a change in your “config.cson” file… reached via FILE >> CONFIG.

    softWrap: false  # the rule

".md.text":  # when available
    softWrap: true  # the exception #1

".gfm.source":  # the default: github version
    softWrap: true  # the exception #2


The documentation of this feature (and how to find out the scope descriptors to use) is in the Atom Flight Manual:


Thank you!
