Description Ondrej Langr 2009-08-12 17:30:08 UTC
When welcome page is focused, information about current line/column should not be there. 

This most likely applies to all main area components which are not text editors.

Filing as P4, for the reason that this does not affect the out of box experience, i.e. the situation when user runs the
IDE for the first time.

Comment 2 Vitezslav Stejskal 2009-08-12 21:02:03 UTC
This should be easy to fix. We know that the focused main window top component does not contain the editor and so we
should be able to just hide the line:column information. Is that correct Milo?
Comment 3 Michel Graciano 2009-08-12 21:30:51 UTC
If it is really an simple fix maybe we can address this by NetFIX program. What do you think?
Comment 4 Vitezslav Stejskal 2009-08-12 21:39:04 UTC
Sure, any help is welcome. Thanks
Comment 5 Jiri Kovalsky 2009-08-17 20:33:24 UTC
OK, then adding NETFIX keyword and adding the issue to NetFIX Pool [1] of issues.

Comment 7 michaelpigg 2009-08-26 21:53:44 UTC
The patch hides both the line/column and the typing mode labels. The issue doesn't specifically say that the typing mode should be hidden, but it seems to 
me like the right thing to do.

Vito, can you please review the patch and integrate it if you find the fix acceptable? Thanks a lot!
Comment 9 Vitezslav Stejskal 2009-09-02 13:20:13 UTC
