Thanks for the suggestion.  I'm renaming this thread's title to include the term word wrap.

There are some technical issues with implementing word wrap, the main thing being that Microsoft doesn't include any way to measure or render text easily in Windows 8 apps other than the use of little TextBlock controls, which are slow performance-wise.  Word wrap requires a lot more measurement operations than normal display mode, so we are concerned that it won't perform well if we add it.  But we may try it anyhow in the future to see if it is workable since there have been several requests for it.

I believe that this is the single most important feature that you could implement. The performance of it is irrelevant - people with weaker systems can leave it off if they don't want it, and people who don't care about performance can turn it on. People with the Surface, for example, can turn it off. People with Quad-Core SoCs in their desktop and full-size SSDs with multiple GBs of RAM can handle it, and we REALLY want this feature :D

 

Don't mean to sound demanding. You guys have made a great free app, showcasing how effective the Metro interface really can be for serious applications.

Thanks for your feedback Colton, we're glad you love the app.  There have been several requests for word wrap so it is moving up in priority.  First we're knocking out some other things like full touch selection, which will be in the next version.
