#24 Blue Border resizing


When opening a file, there is a nice blue border on the
left, whrer Linenumbers are displayed. But I imagined
what would happen, when I open a file with more lines
then the border has space for numbers. I've attached
that file (created by a python script), and compressed,
as it is 600 kbyte big.

My suggestion:
Make the border so long that 4 digit numbers fit (I
doubt there are many programs longer than 9999) but
when a program is longer, resize that border to fit the

Well, that isn't a killer feature but it would be nice :)

Btw: this file also doesn't pass the syntax check like
described in Bug 1118557, but Python makes no problems
running it.

    For that, you have in Options => Document the preference:
    Line Number Margin Width, which you can increase.

    Hmmmm. I could for the next big version, work on
    calculating the pixel size automatically based on the number
    of lines, and using the TextWidth method.....

    Yes, that would be ok. Well, as said, it has no big
    priority, but why don't do it when it is possible?
