There is No "Use soft wraps in editor" option in PyCharm 2019.1.1


I use PyCharm Professional 2019.1.1. 

As a way to apply soft-wrap by default, most explanations tell me to check "Use soft wraps in editor".

But there is No "Use soft wraps in editor" option in PyCharm 2019.1.1.

Am I missing something?

If you know that PyCharm 2019.1.1 has changed to a new method, please give me the answer.




If I correctly understand, you would to wrap your code as you type?

If yes, it can be found under Preferences | Editor | Code Style | Python --> Wrapping and Braces --> Wrap on typing


What I want is soft-wrap by default when opening files.

And I am wondering why the checkbox (placed in File | Settings | Editor | General --> Use soft wraps in editor) disappeared.

Your comment is good but it does not change the code. Thank you.


I think it was moved to a separate group of settings

Have you tried it yet?


Yes I already tried it as my screen shot.

I check the "soft-wrap files" but it does not change the default (not wrapped).



Could you share some example? Screenshot will do.

From what I can see, it adds the soft wraps once I apply the settings.


This is screenshot of my PyCharm.

The 49, 51 lines are not wrapped.

I already check the box and restart the PyCharm, but no work.

The shortcut for soft-wrap is working, but it does not wrap my code by default.


Hmmm, that's odd.

Do you use custom plugins?

If yes, please disable them all and see if it helps.

By the way, does it work in a new test project?


No, I don't use any plugins.

And a new test project also does not wrap long line.

I guess I'll probably have to use the hotkey and wait for additional updates.

Thank you for your advice and suggestions.


We could investigate a bit further if you like.

If yes, please upload your renamed logs folder zipped from Help | Compress Logs and Show in... to and let me know the name of the file so I can find it.


Sorry for necro but just ran into this myself.

The reason it doesn't work is because you use ',' instead of ';' to separate file types.


I'm so sorry that this was my mistake.

Thank you very much for helping me troubleshoot this issue.
