Current line Highlight

If enabled, the editor highlights the that line in code where the text cursor is currently. The option is by default enabled for all source code syntaxes, and disabled for plain text syntax.

The option can be set as for specific document with View→Editor (file specific)→Current Line or for all documents of specific syntax.

Visualization of the current line can be controlled by modifying two colors in Font and Color settings of syntax. They are : Current Line and Current Line Frame color.

The standard visualization looks like this:
