Folder Margin dissapears

    I'm using Notepad++ 6.6.7

    With Display Line Number switched off I use a Margin because I don't want the text so tight up against the edge as it looks awful...

    I set the Margin to Simple but it keeps disappearing whenever I close the window or switch between tabs.

    Also I want the Margin the same color as the background color (white) so it isn't visible, and ideally it's width to be adjustable.

    Assuming this won't be fixed How can I manually adjust the code to fix these problems? (I'm not a programmer)

    Until I can fix this sadly I'll have to look for another editor.

    Hello kiuxlievas,

    You can change the background colour of the Line number margin very easily. Just, follow the method, below :

    • Select the Setting menu

    • Select the Style configurator...* sub-menu

    • In the Style Configurator dialog, select the Default (Stylers.xml) theme

    • Select the Global Styles language

    • Select the Line number margin style

    • Click, with the left mouse button, on the background square box

    • Choose the blank colour, of the right bottom corner of the colours panel

    • Click on the Save & close button

    Et voilà !

    From now on, the margin for line numbers and/or bookmarks is blank as the background text :-)

    To get back to the default colour, you'll need to click on the More colours button and type the value 228 for each primary colours ( Red - Green - Blue )

    To that purpose, see the attached picture kiuxlievas.png. I added some bookmarks, too.

    Best Regards,


    P.S. :

    I did the test, with the 6.6.6 version, but I think there's no change, concerning this point, in the 6.6.7 version !
