**Update 2/5/18**

Plugin confirmed working on Notepad++ v7.3.3 (32-bit).


**Update 3/24/17**

I want to say thank you to Jeffery Grossman who took the time to import code and translate it.

Direct Download to English Version:

Drop this .dll into the C:\Program Files (x86)\Notepad++\plugins\ folder and restart NPP.

Note that the x64 version won’t even have a plugin manager.  See below for more info on that.

I’ve tested it and confirmed it works.

This took me a little bit of digging to find but after a lot of searching – this ruler plugin came up in my search.  The page is in Japanese, so run it through google translate or use the download link here:

Extract and install NppHorizontalRuler.dll here:

Note: This plugin will not work with Npp x64 – The official website specifically says “most of plugins (including Plugin Manager) are not yet available in x64“.

Windows 7: C:\Program Files (x86)\Notepad++\plugins\

Restart Notepad++ and it will appear in the Plugins Menu.  Select “RulerToggle” or “RulerVisible” and it will be enabled. 

Once installed, it will look like this:
