    How do i turn off indentation guides? If I just make them white they still show up durring certain operations. I want to disable them. How to do this?

    For me the settings > perferences menus are a bit unintuitive. I searched but couldn't find it. Help appreciated.

    sometimes things simply are too obvious ;)

    Menu: View\Show Symbol\Show Indent Guide
    OR: use the tool-button

    btw see: HELP: Editing\Indentation

    I stumbled upon this thread during a web search, so I wouldn't mind adding a follow-on question:
    How would I permanently disable Show Indent Guide?  I already knew about 'toggling' it off .. but I wanted the option to disable it upon Notepad++ startup.  Many thanks.

    This happened to me too and the answer is: If it doesn't take straight away, you need to close everything and make sure you restart the program completely.
