Weird line wrapping on 1.7.3


Hi all,

Not sure if this issue has already been addressed, but I did some searching on this forum and didn’t find much. I’m encountering a bizarre issue when editing one of my markdown files where the lines are wrapping in a very unusual way that can be seen here:

  • MacBook Pro (Retina, 15-inch, Late 2013)
  • OS X 10.11.4
  • Atom 1.7.3

Currently have these settings enabled:

  • Soft Tabs
  • Soft Wrap

Thanks in advance!


Can you reproduce the issue in safe mode?


Hi there,

Yes, I see the same issue when I launch Atom via atom --safe path/to/folder


I can’t find the Issue right now. But if I recall correctly, this is fixed on master and should be out with v1.9.x.

Nevermind, I found the Issue:
