Extraneous whitespace column?


I just noticed this after uninstalling the nuclide packages (but it’s probably unrelated), and from what I can see on online screenshots, this is not how it’s supposed to look

Have a look at where the pointer is:

the pointer is on the folding toggle, but on its right there’s a lot of apparently useless and extraneous whitespace. You can even see it in line1: the highlight is missing over that column

Any idea what this might be?

Thank you


I just opened the dev tools (I remembered I could use them only after submitting), and I realized that it’s the column for the linter.

Now, why didn’t I see it before? and shouldn’t the linter require that space only when showing some actual information?
