22The status bar at the bottom of each frame displays information about the
23buffer that is currently active in that frame. By default, this information
24includes the mode of the buffer (Java, C++, HTML, etc.) and the location of the
25caret (line and column number). If  <a href="commands.html#recordMacro">macro
26recording</a> is in progress, "REC" is displayed in the status bar (at the
27right end, after the column number).

31In addition to the default information, the status bar can optionally display
32the line separator for the current buffer (LF, CR, or CR+LF) and the total
33number of lines in the buffer. To activate these options, add one or both of
34the following lines to your<a href="preferences.html"> preferences</a> file:
35<pre>
36    StatusBar.displayLineSeparator=true
37    StatusBar.displayLineCount=true

42The line separator for the current buffer can be changed in the
43Properties dialog (see <a href="commands.html#properties">properties</a>).
