Hi,

Thanks for the answer.

Sorry, my message was not well written...

Many text editors break lines and many users like it for some reason.

A LaTeX document has big paragraphs and for the latex compiler it makes no difference if it's a huge line of if it's broken into many. And the users often think a line break is appropriate at some places while other users will rather put line wraps elsewhere.

I am fine with my text editor, but I'm not willing to try and convince all my co-authors to change theirs.

I just thought it would be more productive if an automatic tool could do it than if every latex user have to argue with the whole team of collaborators and convince each one of them to change their habbits.

Afterall, what happens is that one person trying to stick to decent standards, use free software, do a nice version control, etc., finds their task too hard due to the very lack of simple tools that would make their way of working compatible with that of people that just don't care.

That's why I wondered if there is ever such a tool.
