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?

Yes it does. It took me less than 3 minutes to install Scite and find the answer. Seriously, what's the point of waiting hours and hours for a randow stranger to give you an answer that would have taken you 1 minute to find on your own? I know that SU is a Q&A site but come on, is it too hard to try to find the answer before asking? – romainl Aug 27 '12 at 18:43

Add this


to ~/ and restart scite.

To modify the color of the line use the


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