    [RESOLVED] Getting rid of vertical lines in VS 2017

    When I installed VS 2017 Community version 15.5.2 I noticed there are vertical dotted lines outlining the indentation (block) structure of my code. I immediately felt I would like to get rid of them. I must have tried every possible setting in Tools->Options...->Text Editor->C/C++ to no avail. Please help me.

    All advice is offered in good faith only. All my code is tested (unless stated explicitly otherwise) with the latest version of Microsoft Visual Studio (using the supported features of the latest standard) and is offered as examples only - not as production quality. I cannot offer advice regarding any other c/c++ compiler/IDE or incompatibilities with VS. You are ultimately responsible for the effects of your programs and the integrity of the machines they run on. Anything I post, code snippets, advice, etc is licensed as Public Domain https://creativecommons.org/publicdomain/zero/1.0/ and can be used without reference or acknowledgement. Also note that I only provide advice and guidance via the forums - and not via private messages!

    Thank you. I thought I'd looked everywhere but apparently I hadn't.

    I can't help it but I'm an Emacs user at heart so I strip down every IDE to the bare minimum. Just the source text and me and nothing in-between.
