Drawing a minimap border


I’m using build # 4152.

It would be really nice if the minimap had a colored border to make it easier to see your location in your code. Sublime does change the shade of grey for the location, but you still have to look really hard to discern it. A border would solve this problem. Here’s what I’ve done so far, without success:

	"always_show_minimap_viewport": true,
	"draw_minimap_border": true,
	"minimap_border": "rgba(0, 255, 255, 1)",
// I played around with the `rgba` numbers and it doesn't seem to have any effect.

Thanks for your help!



It works here, but note that minimap_border is not a setting; it’s a color scheme global:

If you want to modify it, use UI: Customize Color Scheme from the command palette or Preferences menu to open the file and add the value as seen here.



This was apparently fixed in build 4153.

This issue bothers me too, but I’d rather wait for the stable version. If you do not mind installing the dev build, the issue should have been addressed.



Okay, I guess I’ll wait. I did put the line

        "minimap_border": "magenta",

in the color-scheme preference file, but it didn’t take. Hopefully, the stable build will come out soon.
