  • 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 Wick 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 '14 at 18:20
  • Here it marks way before the 80 mark. – José Jul 26 '15 at 20:53
