It does not. There is an option to make it *show* the file with wrapped
line, but it does not even have the capability to wordwrap the files
FWIW, I've seen several apps that use .txt for config files, but I can't
think of an example right now. Most don't though - .cfg or .conf is
probably most common. Except for the majority of windows programs that
don't use config files - they use the registry. But I see no reason *at
all* for us to want to do that :-) It also more or less requires you to
write a GUI to change the config stuff and in that case the file
extension becomes irrelevant.
