Can you help me find a text editor that allows for easy font sizing and word wrap?

Issam Se March 23, 2013

I am trying to find a Windows text editor with an easy way to resize the font directly with mouse buttons or the scroll wheel with a good text wrap option. Those two features are important to me!

Any ideas? Thank you!

    Sublime Text 2 - The text editor you'll fall in love with.

    Hi Issam, I read your reply and I think there is some confusion about terminology here. Word wrap means that the editor puts as many words as will fit in the window (or within the paragraph width, if it's a word processor), and then move the rest of the text to the next line, and so on.
    If you want to be able to put each word on a separate line, or combine all the words in a document into a single, long paragraph etc, then you need an editor with good search and replace facilities, ideally with Regular Expression (Regex) support, such as Notepad++ or any of hundreds of other editors.

    Notepad is easy to use
    You can edit easily, font resizing and word wrap
    Try on Notepad's Format >> Word Wrap and Font
    Fonts in easy to change your favorite size

    Notepad2 is very adaptable but to be honest it depends exactly on what you want to use it for i.e. writing code etc.
    If you Google 'Notepad alternatives' you will come up with a hell of a lot.
    I tried a few different alternatives until I settled on Notepad2.

    try Hippoedit it is shareware but with lifetile update i think
    to change the font size, is using mouse wheel, keeping Ctrl.
    if you need other things you can contact them and they will be helping to add new features.

    What's wrong with Microsoft's own notepad? It supports the mouse wheel, and the options you are asking for are there under "Format"!

      yes it's ok but I need more wrap options, I must put all text in one bloc, only one word then space, word the space, word then space for all the text
