Is it possible to get rid of the function folding margin on Notepad++? It seems like the sort of thing that should be in the prefs but I'm not seeing it anywhere.
In notepad++ v188.8.131.52 it's an option in the preferences. Under the "Editing" tab. They call it "Folder Margin Style". You can now select "none".
I think the more generic term for it is code folding.
I found someone else asking the same question on SourceForge
The solution is claimed to be:
If you go into langs.xml and comment out the Language tags for file extensions that you want, for me it's PHP, Perl and VBS, then restart Notepad++ and VOILA!!! No more annoying folder margins.
I hope it helps.
You can add this macro to the Macros section of shortcuts.xml to make a shortcut Ctrl+Alt+H to hide the fold margin. I haven't yet found a way to make the macro auto-execute, so for now you just have to manually hide it for each buffer...
<Macro name="Hide Fold Margin" Ctrl="yes" Alt="yes" Shift="no" Key="83"> <Action type="0" message="2242" wParam="2" lParam="0" sParam="" /> </Macro>
