Would be nice to color the single column just left of the beginning of the line, but I don't think it has a group name like CursorLine. Anyone have any ideas? Maybe some simple macro would do, using colorcolumn, but I'm not sure where to start.

Thanks in advance.

    Are you talking about highlighting indentation? I made a plugin for that if that's what you're asking. – Tommy A Jul 12 '16 at 19:52
  • I was talking about the column left of position 0, but right of the right-aligned line numbering when set nu is used. it is a whitespace column – Luke Davis Jul 12 '16 at 20:09
  • Would highlight LineNr termbg=gray be enough? That sets the highlight for the all the set nu columns. – grochmal Jul 12 '16 at 20:36

    Ah I see what you mean now. You want a visible margin between the line numbers and the text. That's part of the LineNr highlight group and you can't color that single column independently. – Tommy A Jul 12 '16 at 20:37
