Description nfxjfg 2017-11-27 17:11:39 UTC
This was changed a longer time ago. It used to show "Line XXX of XXX" in the bar below the editor. Now it only shows "Line XXX, Column X". It would be nice it it'd show the total number of lines again.

Can't please everyone! :p Personally I'd rather see the current column position than the total number of lines, but maybe there's a way to get both in there without making it look too crowded.
Comment 2 nfxjfg 2017-11-28 10:44:46 UTC
The column position is useful too and should be shown. Though if you remove the words "Line" and "Column", adding the total line number won't increase the horizontal space usage.

But even so, there's plenty of unused horizontal space right of the line number display, at least in my configuration.
Comment 3 Christoph Cullmann 2017-12-20 19:16:17 UTC
I agree this is a valid wish.

Thought that there is a lot of space depends if you e.g. have either a small screen (unlikely) or some splitters (likely).

The part provides that bar, therefore this goes to ktexteditor.

What I would like most is to have a context menu that allows to just configure that.

Patches welcome on phabricator.kde.org
