Editing Documents with Long Lines

Documents that contain long lines can affect performance when opened in Text mode. If you choose to present the document with the Line wrap option enabled, the following features may be affected:

  • The editor uses the Monospaced font.
  • You cannot set font styles.
  • Automatic validation is disabled.
  • Automatic spell checking is disabled.
  • When editing XML documents, the XPath field is disabled in the Find/Replace dialog box.
  • Less precise localization for executed XPath expressions in XML documents. The XPath executions use SAX sources for a smaller memory footprint. We recommend using XPath 2.0 instead of XPath 1.0 because it features an increased execution speed and uses a smaller memory footprint. Running an XPath expression requires additional memory of about 2 or 3 times the size of the document on disk.
