I well, then I think this is why we disagree about this feature. I do not hide the scroll bar, neither the
minimap. You seems to not use the scroll bar. I prefer keep a both
minimap and a scroll bar visible. Then only for me which uses both, would be useful to have some markers on the scroll bar.
I have no idea about how to use the
SHOW_IN_MINIMAP. I searched over the https://www.sublimetext.com/docs/3/api_reference.html but could not find any reference to it. Perhaps it is undocumented? I only found
HIDE_ON_MINIMAP for the function
But accordingly to our context, I assume the creation of the flag
SHOW_IN_SCROLL_BAR should be helpful, to be used to configure whether or not a marker should go on the scroll bar. However, I am not sure how the marker color would be set. Anyways, as long as I can add the marks to the scroll bar and set their coloring, it should be fine.
Again, even if you can add regions to the
minimap and make it look like the makers, the
minimap still has the problem of not covering all the document, as the scroll bar does. Also, I would not like to add markers to the
minimap. The minimap, should be what its name say it is, “a minimap of the code”. At least this is on my perception. I still prefer use the space of the scrollbar, instead of cluttering more things on the
minimap area, as it is not showing anything else I need or being used for something else.
That should be your opinion about their usage. In fact, it is coherent because if you try to guide yourself through a big file by the scroll bar marker, you could have difficulty on finding the exactly spot. But the point of having markers is to know that there is a problem on that region of the file. Anyways, you should be able to click on these markers on the scroll bar, to go to the point they are marking, like the
Go To Command.
