Show error & warning markers next to line number

Is it possible to show the error and warning markers next to line number?

Here's an example from NetBeans (isn't next to line number but replaces line number):

Hi there,

The error/warning/etc markers are displayed on the opposite side -- on scrollbar.

There is no option to display them next to line numbers.

Kind of figured there is no such option as I didn't find it in editor settings. Wanted to make sure though.

I recently switched to PhpStorm from NetBeans and I've been occasionally missing important warnings and errors as the markers aren't displayed on the left side as well.

Well .. they are displayed on rigth side, which is better (IMO) as it covers whole file and not just currently visible part of the file.

Well, it's a matter of preference. I find it best when the markers are displayed on both sides. I occasionally check the right side, but the left side is more visible for me when I write.

1) Pay attention to overall file status -> top left corner
2) Use Navigate|Next/Prev error (F2) to quickly scan the file
3) Try to make it 'green' after you make it work as expected and keep it that way
4) Use Code|Analyse to review the current changelist/other scope

I know ;), it's just that I miss the markers next to line numbers. The old workflow is faster and easier for me, which is why I submitted a feature request.

If this was a show stopper for me, I would be still using NetBeans. There's no way I'd spend over 100€ on a software I don't like.

Linters are pretty important to my current workflow. Would love to have them near line numbers too.

Here is a screenshot of a 4k IDE. Closer proximity for errors and error marks would benefit my user experience noticably.

+1 for this request. Its much harder to see the errors on a wide display with a wide editor pane.

+1 for sure.  It should be right in your face when you have a compile error, not a tiny red line on the far right.

Tweaking the color scheme has been quite good workaround for me. Just set a background color that you will notice.

The latest changes have also been useful as F2 will not just cycle through everything in the file and focuses on the more major problems. For example if you have 2 warnings and 200 weak warnings in the file, F2 will only cycle through warnings in the file.

I would still love to see something next to the line number as it would make spotting the problems even easier.

I would still love to see this feature +1
Coming from sublime, the errors are much less visible, even when you set a background color.
