2011b This should be simple, but I cant find where I change the number of columns the matlab editor uses to trigger the auto-carriage return insertion when typing comments.

Hi, I think following path will definitely solves your problem, Matlab->File->Preferences->Editor/Debugger->Display->Language then check comment formatting

You are correct! Yes, I went to Display instead of Language last time. The field "Maximum column width" does the trick!

You can set limit at following path Goto Matlab->File->Preferences->Editor/Debugger->Display

Hi Shivaputra
I went to Matlab->File->Preferences->Editor/Debugger->Display and I set the "right hand text limit" to 95, but matlab still inserts a CR at 76. When I checkbox the "show line", its definitely out there at line 95, yet text still wraps at 76.
Thanks for the suggestion.
