What is the command for Source > Rewrap text? I want to assign a hotkey to it (besides the obvious Alt+s, w on Windows) but couldn't find the command.

It's fill-paragraph. We probably should expose it also under some more findable name... this naming dates from the early days of Wing 20+ years ago and comes from emacs, which was the first supported editor personality.

Good idea, I definitely wouldn't guess that one. Thanks for the hint!

The command will also be available as wrap-selection in Wing but we'll keep the old name around as well.

That sounds great! My trial will expire in a few days and I plan on purchasing a non-commercial perpetual license. Will that allow me to keep using Wing 8 or is it for Wing 7 only?
