@Alextp, thank you.

To hide folding column, call "Plugins / Options Editor" and find there in DIALOG option "gutter_fold", and change it.

@lintalist Yes, in the json files. It doesn`t matter, I`m not going to use this editor, it`s a big step backwards from SynWrite. I tried, but I just don`t like CudaText at all. lol.

@hamasaki are you sure you are making your changes in settings\user.json ? And which setting do you use to "turn it off"? Perhaps better to discuss in the Forum or post an issue at the GitHub repository (developer seems very responsive)

This is a really frustrating editor to work with. Having the settings in json files is really not good. And how can I disable code folding? I keep thinking I`ve switched it off, only for it to come back on again.

What is good is that CudaText has text/raw/hex viewer - from the Universal Viewer app. For files which cannot be edited [huge files]. It can viewer, like Universal Viewer, files of any size, e.g. 4Gb. But not edit, only view.

(from author of CudaText) I'm making CudaText instead of SynWrite for these reasons:
1) I made editor part from scratch, only added to it EControl parser from 3rd party, but editor core is totally new, from scratch. I can optimize or change it like i want. It is cool. E.g. in 2017 summer I made huge optimizations for huge log files (300Mb+) and editor is fast here. I can change what i want in the core. In Synwrite I cannot do it: core is not mine, only my small tweaks. It was not good, not fast, not changable. 2) New app is Win32/Linux/macOS, CudaText is cross platform. Cool too. It can replace Sublime for some users. Not only Win32 users.
