Vscode: wrapping git commit messages

Is it just me, or is there really no easy way to have vscode automatically apply word-wrap to commit messages? This is one of the few things I find deeply annoying about vscode, so if there’s a good fix I’d love to hear about it. (I’d also like it if editing the message on amended commits didn’t totally trash your line breaks…this is one of the areas where Atom was much nicer.)

If there really isn’t a workaround, and others are bothered by it too, this issue needs more upvotes within the next month: https://github.com/microsoft/vscode/issues/103128


Unfortunately I don’t think there’s a way to do this without upstream support…

And I agree – Atom’s git support is much nicer than anything there is in VSCode atm.


It seems this community put the upvote count up to the required 20. Glad that we helped!
