Wrap lines intelligently (simulating indents)
Like other text editors, Visual Studio has a word wrap feature (Tools / Options / Text Editor / All languages / Word wrap ). However unlike other text editors, Visual Studio's word wrap ignores indents, spilling the line continuation into the margin. This makes the page very messy.
Take a look how other text editors do line wrap (screenshot of Notepad++ attached), respecting indentation, so the line continuation is displayed with the same margin. http://stackoverflow.com/questions/12324453/wrap-lines-intelligently-simulating-indents-in-visual-studio-2012
Another bug with Visual Studio's word wrap is that triple clicking in the editor selects the line on screen rather than the physical line as expected.
ps. A bug with 'User Voice' is that this text area is tiny!
Needs confiurgable setting. Also a 'Join lines split on the '.' operator refactoring for entire file would be great.

I second this request. XCode has being doing this forever.
This appears to be fixed in Visual Studio 2013! Thanks (at last)!
I need this as well!
If you think "this isn't worth fixing because only a few Visual Studio users use word wrap", consider that "most Visual Studio users don't use word wrap BECAUSE IT'S BROKEN".
