Ok, so here's what's happening at the moment. I replaced the [ .git/COMMIT_EDITMSG ] section with your suggestion, then when I tried to commit, the file type was being set as Markdown. I tried commenting out everything else in my .tm_properties, still interpreted as Markdown. I then started a commit, manually changed the file type at the bottom of the window, cancelled the commit, and then next time I tried to commit it remembered the file type.

So that's good, but now when I set softWrap = true, the soft wrap indicator turns off, and softWrap = false turns the indicator on. And regardless of the setting, the text still soft wraps. Kinda weird.

Topping it off, I tried this and it also turns the soft wrap indicator *on*.


Thanks for the suggestions so far.
