Great software! I need help on getting started


Hi, I just installed the atom software which looks promising and great but however I have encounter a problem where I cant seem to find a setting to change these

as you can see, the line is sticking in the middle not sure what is that but I wanted to look like this from my notepad++

Any idea how to change the setting of this one?


Welcome to Atom! :tada: Glad you’re mostly liking it so far.

Take a look at What is this line on the right in the editor view?


Thank you so much but any idea how to turn on these lines like image below?


Sure :relaxed: – just enable Show Indent Guide in Settings:

I’d also recommend taking a look at the Atom Flight Manual, which should contain everything you need to get started.


Got it, thank you for helping! :smiley:
