Configuring the Ruler

By default, the horizontal ruler in the editor is not shown. You can specify whether to display it and you can also choose its style - a default style or a mainframe style for which the ruler indicates COBOL area A/B. To do this:

  1. In the IDE, click Tools > Options.
  2. Expand Text Editor and then expand Micro Focus COBOL.
  3. Click Margins.
  4. Check Show the ruler and then check Mainframe style if you want the ruler to indicate the A/B area.
  5. Click OK.
