if i disable line number margin to be displayed, and keep bookmark margin on, i cannot hardly click left margin to select line, since the cursor does not change between bookmark margin and the place that i can click to select line.
all in all, i recommend two. 1, cursor displays different where i click to bookmark and where i click to select line. 2, give more space to select whole line in the case bookmark margin may be decreased. all these are on the basis that i keep bookmark margin on and line numbers off to save work space.
I had an editor once, in which there was a separate "line selection" margin - I could click on it to select a whole line. In fact, I still have that habit and frequently subconsciously click on the folding margin to select a line. Of course this makes bookmark instead and thus turns a single click into a series of three clicks - another one to delete the bookmark and then the final, precise one to select a line.
Me too, sometimes I want to select a line and end up bookmarking it.
Maybe the bookmark "column" should be placed at the left of the line numbers.
And for bookmarks, either a cursor change or a hover effect could help.
not seeing this problem CORRECTED, i'm afraid i cannot bear to use notepad++.
I wanted to select the current line and did not even know about this magic hotpoint feature until I found this thread.
Perhaps a context menu option "Select current line" should be provided, which does the same thing. Perhaps even with a shortcut key as well.
Tripleclicking a line works well. Its like doubleclick but then three button presses, the whole line will be selected
