You're not missing anything ... the new script workspace does not wrap comments. We have requested they fix it but I am unsure when/if that will happen.
In truth, I do not want the script steps to wrap because it makes the script difficult to read. Comments only should wrap.
I agree that wrapping comments would improve things. But to play devil's advocate, maybe refusing to wrap comments is an incentive to keep your comments concise?
We list revisions made in a changelog. To keep it concise (smile), each date/developer is a line and all their changes are within as:
modified ... etc
Comments can still be 'concise' by displaying only the first line. But if a developer wants to add detail information within, they should be able to do so without having to hold down option before each line. It is no different than a README script. At least that's my story. :-)
I don't know any IDE that wraps comments on 2 or more lines, whether it's Visual Studio on Windows or X Code on OS X in the editor itself. But strangely, sometimes the Script Workspace wraps scripts steps... strange.
Looks like FileMaker Pro 15 fixed this issue. Wrapping comments happens automatically, and ctrl-enter still places a manual line break.
Awesome! Thanks for the info Jeff. I was wondering if it would but couldn't tell definitively from what I had seen of FM15 so far.
