Modern Text Editing

Unlike other terminals, Warp’s input editor operates out of the box like a modern IDE and the text editors we’re used to.

Text Editor Input also works for SSH sessions.

Soft Wrapping

Warp supports soft wrapping in the input editor. If an autosuggestion goes off-screen, the input editor will be horizontally scrollable to make it visible. Some operations treat soft-wrapped lines like a logical line (TRIPLE-CLICK) while other operations treat soft wrapped lines like visible different lines (UP/DOWN, SHIFT-UP/SHIFT-DOWN).

Copy on Select

Warp supports copy on select for selectable text within Blocks.

  • Toggle this feature Settings > Features > General or search for "Copy on select" in the Command Palette.

Input Hints

Warp input occasionally shows hints within the input editor in a light grey text that helps users learn about features. It's enabled by default.

  • Toggle this feature Settings > Features > Editor or search for "Input hint text" in the Command Palette or Right-click on the input editor.

Autocomplete Quotes, Parentheses, and Brackets

Warp can automatically complete quotes, brackets, and parentheses like you're used to in IDEs.

  • Toggle this feature Settings > Features > Editor or search for "Autocomplete quotes" in the Command Palette.
