What are these numbers on the left ?
Hi all, I’m new here (though quite longtime Notepad++ user).
In a file I have open where I get these numbers on the left (circled red by me):
Just out of curiousity, what are they and how / why do they automatically appear there ?
I guess it’s something in the file that causes them ?
They are line numbers.
But why arent’t they continous in this case (meaning every line has a number) ?
There’s 1,2, then someway further down after a big gap there’s 3 and so on (not visible on the screenshot).
You have word wrap turned on. If it wraps a line then that doesn’t count as an actual numbered line.
Ah, makes sense.
Solved, thank you.
