validate syntax- errors not near scroll bar

  • Wanda_B_Anon

    Is this a setting I screwed up, or a bug or a feature loss?

    I edit with line numbers on left, and a scroll bar on right.  Used to be, when syntax checking found errors, the visible lines with errors had a white X in a red circle in the frame to the left of the line number, and

    > there_were_red_ticks on the scroll bar on the right < 

    that marked locations of errors on lines not visible in the window.

    In EPIC source 0.6.17 and Editor 0.6.10 on Eclipse 3.3.0 on Win XP I see no ticks on the right.

    Is this a setting or a lost feature?

    I like the feature, I do not need to scroll all over to confirm no errors or find the location of errors.

      "Show overview ruler" in Perl EPIC/Editor preferences. You can also configure what appears there and what does not in the "Annotations" section of the (general Eclipse) preferences.
