If you have ever presented or written an article you probably have ran across a situation where the code you have written contains lines that are to long and you need to modify them to fit on the screen or page. This can be a real pain especially when you write code using a wide screen monitor with a high resolution. Well for the past few years I have just lived with this issue until I ran across this really cool blog entry Guidelines – A hidden feature for the Visual Studio Editor by Sara Ford that details how to modify your registry setting to get guidelines in the Visual Studio editor. Once I modified my registry setting, lines showed up in the editor giving me a visual clue of how long my code lines were. At last no more code hacking! For those of you who don’t know who Sara Ford is she is a prolific blogger of all things Visual Studio related and a great source for all kinds of little trinkets on the subject.
