Ok, this is perfect!

I just like to hide things that I never use (or don’t use in a certain project). I would like to be able to turn the action/status bar and gutter on and off individually, preferably through a keyboard shortcut. Ultimately, I would like to be able to turn certain controls (such as the macro record button) off individually, but that would not be as important.

Though I do wonder what the issue is with these columns that make some users want to hide them. Is it just that foldings are not used and thus the column takes up unnecessary space?

There is absolutely no issue with the gutter or its functionality, it is all useful. I just like the cleaner, distraction free look sometimes when I want to focus on coding and don’t need functionality or information offered in the gutter, status or action bar.
