Indent Arrows

Postby Billiam » Wed Jul 11, 2018 6:58 am

Hello!

I am relatively new to CodeLite. I was messing around with the settings to get a good environment for my development. I noticed how indents are marked with little arrows. Is there a way to change that? I like the style that Visual Studio has where there is a dotted line from start of an indentation to the end. Is there a way to change the settings to be like that?

Thank you!

Hi,

In Settings > Preferences > Folding, I think a mixture of 'Flatten Tree (Square|Circlular) Headers' and 'Highlight Active Fold Block' will do what you want.

Regards,

David

The indentation markers are displayed as arrows when TAB is used for indenting. If you use SPACE, it will be shown as dots.

According to the docs, TAB can be displayed either as Arrow or Strikeout line:

I can try the strikeout and see how it looks and maybe make it configurable
