If you have a window with multiple tabs and you turn line
numbering on/off in one of the tabs, it affects all the other tabs in
that window as well.

Line numbering changes should be specific to the tab where there
are applied, not to every tab in the window.

    I agree, line numbers should be bound to the document, not
    the window. This is not possible with the current
    implementation.

    I would want the gutter (the area where the line numbers are
    displayed) to be displayed at all times though, to avoid
    jumping text when switching windows.

    If the gutter is always displayed, what do we gain by turning
    off the line numbers? IMO, line numbers should be ON by
    default (it's OFF now). In fact, line numbers should probably
    be left ON all the time, unless you are so tight on the screen
    area.

    Good question. Not much, a little less noise on the screen
    maybe.

    I wouldn't mind line numbers at all times, but that would be
    a step backwards. I'm sure many people will hate them.

    As for the general problem, I think there is a conflict
    between non-jumping text and per-document gutter. I don't
    see a clean way to resolve it.
