      Description

      As far as I browsed documentaiton and tried various options, there is the option either to break long lines (and start the broken line at the left margin) or not break lines automatically at all.

      Vim has the feature of "breakindent" which indents the dynamically-broken line based on indentation of its context (i.e. the start of the line whitespace). Breakindent was merged into vim in 7.4.338. This feature makes the code much easier to read even when it has to be broken.

       

      Maybe I am missing something in the documentation, since Kate has this feature (dynamic word wrap / align dynamically wrapped lines to indentation depth).
