Updated from 14.04 to 14.10. Now PyCharm is starting with its vertical line in the middle of the editor. Searched the entire settings and couldn't a find solution. This article talks about disabling the "wrap-guide" or edit "stylesheet"?

The vertical line in the picture can be disabled by going to Settings. Ctrl+Alt+S or from File -> Settings -> Editor -> General -> Unbox Right Margin

In PyCharm there is a vertical line at 120 columns to indicate a suggested maximum line length. To disable the vertical line:

Settings -> Editor -> Colors & Fonts -> General, select Right margin, uncheck the checkbox for Foreground
