I’m using Atom for blogging, and I’ve been writing a lot of markdown. My goal is to set up Atom so that Markdown files have a line length of 80 characters and auto-wrap at the 80 characters. I’ve pasted the following into my
config.cson, but Atom doesn’t seem to be regarding it in any way:
"source.gfm": editor: preferredLineLength: 50 softWrap: true softWrapAtPreferredLineLength: true
I’ve verified that the scope of my Markdown file is indeed
source.gfm. I’ve also tried this in safe mode, and it is still not working. Updating the global configuration from the settings GUI or from the
config.cson file does exactly what I want, but I would like to only change these settings for Markdown.
Does anyone know what I’m doing wrong? It’s possible that I just don’t understand something about the scope-specific configuration. Thanks for your help!
