line wrapping in visual markdown breaks bookdown text reference

Hi everyone. I am using the new markdown editor in Rstudio 1.4.1056. In this I can set the line wrapping to 'sentence' (https://rstudio.github.io/visual-markdown-editing/#/markdown?id=line-wrapping ) which I think is really helpful when using it for manuscripts with a lot of text in combination with GIT version control.

However, a bookdown text reference with multiple sentences will break as soon as I switch to visual markdown editing, since the line wrapping is also performed on the text in the bookdown text reference block. Is there any way to circumvent this behavior and let Rstudio always perform line wrapping except for when a bookdown text reference is used?

The Rmarkdown example below can reproduce the problem (save this code as Rmarkdown, then switch to visual markdown editing).

Thanks for the quick response and fix! I can't test it yet of course but I'll wait for the next version. Shall I mark it as the solution already? I really like the recent improvements in Rstudio, thank you to all of the developers!
