New settings for Editor limit line

Not all of our new features are as complex and headline-earning as the Current Directory or Function Browser. Sometimes we quietly introduce small features or enhancements. Did you notice that the character limit line in the editor went from pink to gray?

The right-hand line went from pink to gray in MATLAB R2008b

The line is customizable now, so if 1 pixel gray does not do it for you, go ahead and change the width, color, and placement from the preferences (File -> Preferences -> Editor -> Display).

Change the limit line appearance in File - Preferences - Editor - Display

This was one of our smaller enhancements in the latest release, but a useful one none the less, especially for laptop users where some colors are hard to see. Additionally, it’s the first thing I contributed as a new member of the desktop team over a year ago!
