|I posted the following to the Nedit list yesterday, but it seems to be inactive. Would appreciate knowing if anyone else has had a similar difficulty.
I've been using Nedit on my Gentoo installation for years, and recently found that setting Wrap > Continuous in the Preferences menu and saving defaults does not work.
The ~/.nedit/nedit.rc file contains the line:
but in spite of this every file loads with nowrap set; i.e. long lines off-screen. All other settings save and load correctly.
If memory serves this seems to have happened within the last year or so. After various checks and installing updated versions I'd like to fix whatever is wrong. I'm not sure whether it's specific to my system, to the Gentoo build, or to Nedit proper.
The Gentoo version is nedit-5.5_p20110116-r2 but the version switch gives:
NEdit release of Aug 20, 2004

Has anyone else experienced similar trouble? With thanks for any replies,
