Fix the soft word-wrap not working in InfoPath for SharePoint Sites.
Several SharePoint Sites using InfoPath forms do not support word-wrap for (HTML) text area elements. There are workarounds which require modifying style sheets (CSS) for each SharePoint Site. These workarounds need to be applied on a site-by-site basis, and they are not supported by some newer SharePoint Sites. This extension bypasses the problem and directly applies the fix to the text areas in all SharePoint Sites that are sub-domains of sharepoint.com. Available also for Firefox at https://addons.mozilla.org/en-GB/firefox/addon/infopath-word-wrap-fixer/. If you need to fix area text elements in any websites, see https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/cmiebacajlhfnfdofcflofoaaikdbpbc.

Hi there and thanks for this capability. It seems to work well and digs me out of part of the ongoing holes caused by no ongoing development of InfoPath. It's a great shame Microsoft have just left one of their really useful applications to fade away. However I was wondering if you had looked at adding this as a capability to other browsers such as Edge and Firefox? If you have anything to suggest / guidance for this I'd appreciate understanding this. Regards. Alan C.
