Script Viewer format no longer wraps in version 5.4

I recently upgraded to Toad Data Point 5.4 and now when I go to view a script from the Viewer WIndow the script no longer word wraps to a readable format. Instead it's all on one long line. I did not change any of my settings and even tried to restore defaults to no avail. How can I get it formatted back to how previous versions of TDP did it?

Assuming that you are simply bringing up the Script subtab in the Viewer doc tab.
With a little bit of play time, I am able to reproduce, but oddly enough, it only happens if I look at stored procedures... scripting seems to be nicely formatted for all other major object types, including tables, views, functions and packages, etc. We'll have Dev take a look at this more closely.

In the meantime, you can easily hit the tool bar button to pass the code into the Editor and do a quick format there. Hope this helps.

And as a followup, duly noted by the Dev team... trying to see if we can get a fix in the next release later this year in September/October time frame.

Yes--I'm looking at the Script tab in the Viewer window. The formatting won't word wrap only when looking at views. Tables, packages, functions, etc. all work fine.

Hi, I had the same problem in SQL editor. If you want formatting works with 5.4 in SQL editor, you have to remove all commented lines...

Hope this help.

I want the comment lines. Need a fixed for the editor "Format SQL" bug.

Is this with a SQL Server data source? If not what source are you using?

sorry for my lack of responsiveness, SQL editor with Oracle scripts wrap only when no commented lines inside the statement.
