Does SciTE have a setting similar to Vim’s colorcolumn

scitetext-editorsvim

For those who don't know what colorcolumn in Vim is – it displays a vertical line after a custom amount of characters. Very useful to keep track of line lengths when writing code (so they don't get bigger than 80 chars). Does SciTE have such a feature and setting to control the position of the line length limit marker column-wise?

  • Add this

    edge.mode=1
    edge.column=80
    

    to ~/.SciTEUser.properties and restart scite.

    To modify the color of the line use the

    edge.colour=#FF0000
    

    setting. (Notice the spelling, edge.color won't work).
