I'm trying to search for a word in a ttx file that I've opened in Notepad++ (v5.8.6).
When I get the search results, I can't see the resulted (highlighted in yellow) if it comes near the end of the line. I scroll to the end of the very long line and the sentence disappears with "..."
I know the word is there.
Can anyone tell me how I can scroll the end of the line and stop Notepad++ just breaking it off with the ellipses?
Thank you.

Have you tried... Apr 2, 2011

(in Notepad++) to go to View and select Break long lines (or sth like that, seventh option in the drop down list).

@ Avinash and Istvan:
I think you're both referring to the same thing: "word wrap" and "break long lines", and I've tried checking and unchecking this with no luck. Nothing seems to change.
@ Lennart:
If I press "end" on the keyboard I get to same place that I can scroll horizontally to, which is "..." (it breaks off in the middle of a word and the ellipses follow).

So thank you for your ideas, but I'm afraid I still can't see the end of the line.

For the time being I solved the problem by opening the file with Windows Notepad.
