      Sometimes, I inadvertantly hit some key or key-combination that removes all line-breaks from a file being edited. What can that be? There ought to be a way to disable that. And such a command should request confirmation.

          Sounds like 'Join Lines' (Ctrl+J) to me. I don't think you can disable
          it. However, you can restore things to how they were by pressing
          Ctrl+Z.

          When I ve tried to undo with Ctrl-Z it doesn t fix THIS problem. Would the Split Lines option have any bearing on this problem?

              If Ctrl+Z doesn't change anything, then the answer is No.

              Ctrl+z undoes actual changes to the document.

              Take a look at Word-Wrap instead (Ctrl+W). This TOGGLES the way lines are displayed, without modifying the document.
