how to make comments not wrap?
or alternatively, how can i move this annoying vertical gray line that insists on wrapping my comments to the next row? My code can have >80 characters/per line, must i always have this line through the middle of my code?

Go to Preferences -> Editor -> Language
Under 'Comment formatting', uncheck 'Wrap comments automatically while typing'

The vertical line is still there at column 75.

Under Editor/Debugger preferences, in the Display section, unselect "Right-hand text limit".
See this documentation page for more information about the various Editor/Debugger preferences.

The answer (from 2015) of @Jon now with screenshot:
Preferences -> MATLAB -> Editor/Debugger -> Language -> Comment formating
Uncheck "Wrap comments automatically while typing".

Did you even look through the Editor options in Preferences? There is a button you can uncheck to turn it off.
