Vertical edge (line) isn't visible



  • My vertical edge has long been set to 132.

    However with newer versions (perhaps since multiple values can be written) this vertical line is not visible, because there is a Space character after the number 132, as I experience. If I remove this Space, the vertical line immediately appears.
    However, after restarting N++, there is no vertical line and again there is a Space character after the vertical edge setting (132).

    Starting without plugins the vertical edge again visible, I found that “ExtSettings” is the delinquent, enough to disable it.
    Because I don’t use it, I will uninstall.

  • @dinkumoil - just in case you haven’t seen this yet.



  • I tried to duplicate the OP’s experience and could not; all worked fine for me.



  • @Alan-Kilborn - interesting, I did a fresh local mode install (unzipped npp.7.8.7.bin.zip, 32 bit version), set the Vertical Edge, copied the ExtSettings folder containing ExtSettings.dll, and npp doesn’t show the Vertical Edge. If I remove ExtSettings folder , the vertical line appears fine.

    It seems that all I contributed to this thread was noise; sorry.
    I don’t use ExtSettings and I didn’t read far enough into your first posting before I went off and started trying things.
    I suppose at this point I’d agree with the finding that ExtSettings is a factor in what you are seeing.
