Is there a way I can get a vertical marker line to appear at the 80th character column in notepad++?

That works, thanks! But strangely, it seems to be off by two columns for me when you compare it to the column counter in the status bar. –  speedplane May 3 '12 at 5:17
    
@speedplane: yeah I just noticed that! then number-of-columns: 78 haha? –  jay May 3 '12 at 13:26

At some point before v6.5.2, the column number location has been fixed so is no longer off by two. –  Smalltown2k Mar 8 at 18:20
