Perhaps bookmarks could be shown on the ruler, too?
On the other hand, I would like to have margins on the text window of Vedit. That is, a few pixels of margin on the display only, as in Visual Studio for example. (The width of the margins, in pixels, could be set from Config menu.)
The margins could be used pretty much for the same functions as suggested above for the rulers.
Another problem with the (left) ruler is that it is so wide, because room has been reserved for so many digits. That does not look nice, and it takes more space than needed. Could it be possible to make the ruler narrower if the file does not have a billion lines? Or, alternatively, a user configuration option for the ruler width.
