Emacs - Margins And Word Wrap

Break Here


In text mode, Emacs wraps text and line breaks at the character. Text is displayed to Emacs  border. That's fine for code, but if you need to edit a lot of text, its nice to persuade emacs to break lines at word boundary and to have a small margin between the text and the outer edge.

Change word wrap boundary, do:

M-x visual-line-mode

You get a ragged edge on the right side a-la word processor.

Done!
