Finally, changesets
provide features for automatically adding comment strings while breaking comment lines and for breaking lines in comments only.

I have pushed changesets
adding settings for line wrapping and line breaking in the editor.

Still missing is a possibility to automatically break lines in comment blocks.

I have marked bug #49947 as duplicate of this bug and changed the release of this bug to "dev".

either auto-wrapping (i.e., as you type)
or as a menu item to wrap selected lines
at 80-column width; this is useful for
large comment blocks.

found this for auto-wrap:
If wrap set to 1 then the edit pane is dynamically line wrapped

found nothing for wrap selection though.
