Remove the vertical line in IntelliJ IDEA

IntelliJ IDEA shows by default a vertical line more or less in the middle of the editor. If you find this rather annoying like me, you can turn it off. Go the settings by clicking File > Settings or pressing CTRL + ALT + S.

Then navigate to Editor > General > Appearance and uncheck the option Show hard wrap guide (configured in Code Style options) (third from the top).

Hit Apply and then OK, and the line is gone.

    How to change the position of that line instead of removing it?

    Thanks for sharing your knowledge.

      Hi, under Editor > Code Style you can change the “Visual guides” and “Hard Wrap” values to your liking. You can also set it specifically for one language by selecting it from the dropdown under Code Style.
