    Hi!

    I'm really in love with this editor. I use it because of the great feature to "Show White Space and TAB". I would be really nice if this state were saved on close. Why do you have to turn it on every time you use the editor?

    Another suggestion:
    I miss the option of somehow get a marking of a certain row size. You could make an option to show a vertical line at XX-character row width (i need an 80-char marking).

    Yet another suggestion:
    Don't make white spaces on an empty line.
    - If you are in a code block that is example 8 characters into the line, and you press Enter, you will make a new line and start 8 characters in. The problem is that if you want to make an empty line (you press Enter again) you correctly make a new line and start 8 characters into line, but - the empty line above is not empty - it holds 8 white spaces.
    Solution: Don't make the 8 white spaces unless the user types something on the line.

      OK, the setting of "Show White Space and TAB" will be memorized. But I don't promise you that will be in the next version.

      Go to Menu "Settings->Set # column for vertical edge line" set it to 80 then enable "view->vertical Edge Line mode" et voila.

      > Don't make white spaces on an empty line.

      It's due to the auto-indent. For the moment you can't diable this feature. But I'll consider to give to user a choice to enable/disable this feature.
