How Do I Remove Vertical Line?



  • I have a vertical white line running from top to bottom near the right side. It happened months ago and I can’t figure out how to remove it.

    I just installed v7.3.1. I thought that after several updates that it would go away but it has not. I have no idea what caused it. BTW, I have a orange background.



  • @Troglo37

    Settings->Preferences->Editing->Vertical Edge Settings
    uncheck Show vertical edga

  • Thanks Claudia! You’re awesome! I wasn’t sure if Notepad++ was corrupted or not. I still can’t figure how that happened. I don’t remember fooling around anywhere near those settings.

    BTW, what is that vertical line used for?



  • @Troglo37

    used to give you a visual indication that you hit the configured character count.
    This is mostly for historical reasons where a monitor was only able to display 80 chars
    per line and/or for programming languages which do only support a certain amount of character per each line.

    Cheers

  • So that’s what its for. Interesting. Thanks again for your help!
