The dmd folder shows the correct markers because it changes the fold level by only one. I wrote a lua folder as an experiment that changes levels by one and it shows all markers too. So until folders have been implemented for the lexers you use, not all markers will show up. Which ones do you use? If it's possible, I will make those a priority.

You will have to recompile ta with the newest LexLPeg.cxx. I have also
made a comment in the new folding thread.

This cannot be done easily without getting the buffer's indent size which
is not exposed to the the LPeg lexer (via ILexer interface).
