For some text formats, line breaks matter.
For example, I often use Vim to write MediaWiki documents, where you can't just put a linebreak anywhere (unlike Markdown). So I'm forced to write lines with a lot of characters.
This can lead to long (200+ chars) or even very long (1000+ chars) lines. I find this very awkward to use in Vim. One example is if I want to edit something in the middle of the 1000 character-line, I need to move my cursor 500 times.
This can be made a bit faster with
/, but it's still awkward.
Are there better ways to deal with this? Better movement keys? Some sort of "fake wrapping" (text behaves as if
tw=80, but no
\n in the file), or something else?
