how to make comments not wrap?
or alternatively, how can i move this annoying vertical gray line that insists on wrapping my comments to the next row? My code can have >80 characters/per line, must i always have this line through the middle of my code?

Did you even look through the Editor options in Preferences? There is a button you can uncheck to turn it off.

Go to Preferences -> Editor -> Language
Under 'Comment formatting', uncheck 'Wrap comments automatically while typing'


This was the answer that actually helped me find that checkbox! Thanks.
