Word wrap in properties file

Hi all,
Is there any capability in IDEA to auto wrap long lines in plain text
files e.g. properties files? I've got a properties file with some very
long text in it, and it's a pain to work with when it scrolls right off
the screen.
What I'd like is something like the Notepad++ behaviour for wrapping
(see attachment) where lines are auto broken, but a small symbol is put
to show that this isn't a real line break.
I hope there is already something like this, but that I'm just missing it.
Cheers,
N.

Hello Nathan,

There's no such feature in IntelliJ IDEA at the moment, but my personal hope
is that it will appear in IDEA 9. :)

Excellent... I take it there's no need to submit a JIRA for this then?

Hear, hear!  Short of this, it would be great if there were a way to invoke an external editor on wide text files (generalization: mapping of external editors/viewers to file types).
