Matthias Bläsing commented on NETBEANS-346:

I just checked with a master build from yesterday on these combinations:

OpenJDK 8u151 on Ubuntu Linux

Oracle JDK 10 on Ubuntu Linux

Oracle JDK 8 on Windows 10

On all these platforms I see correct alignment of one tab character and 8 
spaces and I also see the margin line exactly between the 80. and 81. character.

As I don't own a mac, here end my options to check this further. Thinks that 
might be relevant to check:
 * which JDK is installed (version, vendor)
 * is the selected editor font present on the system? (maybe you are seeing a 
 * Check if it helps to switch the editor font to a different monospaced font

>            Priority: Critical

> When the Right Margin is set at 80 chars, it is drawn at 8*2* chars. This is 
> annoying because I have a 1440x900 screen that I split vertically in to two. 
> This results in two editing areas that are about 80 chars wide. I could see 
> the margin line in both editors when scrolled all the way to the left. Since 
> Netbeans (9.0 beta) is now drawing them at char 8*2*, it is not possible to 
> size those editors so I can see the line in both windows and it is driving me 
> crazy.
> This is a first world issue at the moment, but you might find code coming 
> from mac programmers coming in two or more chars too wide in the Netbeans 
> source code.
