Line wrapping

You people talk like appreciating the lack of the feature I was asking  
for is obligatory and wanting something different is prohibited. I  
want automatic line wrapping. Period.

I haven't got a reply to my answer yet. Could anyone think of a way to  
make lines wrap automatically in the script editor? I guess that just  
setting the dontWrap of field "Script" of stack "revNewScriptEditor"  
to false will break it.

Best regards,
