    Hi long time since ive been on, im getting back into programming with B4a but ive already hit a snag i have to scroll to the right in the project viewer as shown in the attached image.

    i couldn't see word wrap option in the application window for B4a?

    is it possible to word wrap the dev tool?

    Maybe in future. Dont know if this is planned.
    But you can split your string to multiple lines using _
    or you can use the new string literals using
    $"Long text
    over multiple lines
    to read it better"$

    I also use the underscore character a lot! :)
    So much that my B4A code even looks like C/Java sometimes... :D
    If ( _
           Controller.L_Analog_X >= Controller.Dead_Zone _
    OR Controller.L_Analog_Y >= Controller.Dead_Zone _
    OR Controller.R_Analog_X >= Controller.Dead_Zone _
    OR Controller.R_Analog_Y >= Controller.Dead_Zone _
    OR Controller.L_Trigger  >= Controller.Dead_Zone _
    OR Controller.R_Trigger  >= Controller.Dead_Zone _
       ) _
    AND _
    Not(Gamepad_Mode) Then
            Gamepad_Mode = 
    End If

    I use a 4K screen. If I get too long lines on that one, I'm doing something wrong...

    Also, as others have said, consider the _. Usually, if you get too long lines, breaking them improves readability. It also provides breaks at logical places, something a word wrap might not do.

    Maybe I misunderstood the question, but B4A does have Word Wrap?
