Whenever my client open any query or stored procedure in SSMS and it has a long horizontal bar, I often find it extremely difficult to work with those queries. I always request my clients that if we are going to work on the SSMS if possible, I prefer to enable the Word Wrap option in the SSMS.
Word wrap feature moves the text to a new line automatically as the margin is reached. It is very convenient when one is working with the text which goes all the way horizontal.
It is very easy to enable word wrap in SSMS. You can go to Main Menu >> Tools >> Text Editor >> All Languages and under settings, you can enable this feature. Here is the screenshot of the image.
Here is a few additional blog post which can help you with SSMS efficiency.
