"True" word wrapping is when you adjust the edit handles to specify a distance to wrap at; this is opposed to line length, which is the number of characters to wrap at. You can adjust existing elements by opening them in the editor, then opening the text style dialog (to modify active settings), then go to the advanced tab, and adjust "line length" under the "spacing" group. It is tucked away like this to discourge new uses of this setting, but still allowing existing elements to be modified. I'm not sure there's a way to do this in bulk (unless you have text styles; line length can be specified in a text style).
Just to clarify, when you say "true" word wrapping, is that a different setting? Or do you mean just setting line length to 0 with word wrap.
And so there is no way for the line length of existing text nodes to be changed?
Line length was our first attempt at "word wrapping" a very long time ago. It is now considered deprecated, and you should use true word wrapping instead, which came around later (8.5.2'ish I think). Since we can't remove features, the two have to co-exist somehow. I believe a line length of 0 is effectively unlimited, so give that a try.
I have a text node that is word wrapped, and it has a text style with a line length of 100. Is there any way to change this specific text node to have a longer length so I can use a handle to adjust it's width, without being restricted by this line length number?
May I also ask what is the purpose of the line length number with word wrap if you can adjust the text "box" size?
