Title: Draw a vertical line between matching braces
Post by: rowbearto on April 01, 2015, 06:44:35 pm
Notepad++ is able to draw a vertical line between matching braces, as shown in the below screenshot. It is very helpful.

It would be great if SE could also do this.

I'd like brace indentation guidelines --  faint dotted lines that match up vertically between each open/close brace.  VisualStudio, Notepad++, and UltraEdit all have this.  It's the only thing I miss in SlickEdit!

You might want to try enabling the Selective-Display bracketing that was added in SlickEdit 2015.

    Tools > Options > Appearance > General > Selective Display

    Document > C/C++ Options > View > Create file outline > Statement level.

We plan to do the indentation guides more dynamically in a future release, but this works quite well at the moment.

Thanks Dennis. I tried this and it is certainly an improvement. But I think it would be nicer if the vertical lines would be shown in the same column as the vertical braces instead of stacking them up to the left of the screen (or give the option to choose where to put the vertical lines).

I agree with rowbearto. It would look much better if the lines were in the same column as the braces.
