column rules length option to set frame-based
I want the option to make the length of the column rules always the same as when there is no text.
Currently, the length of a column rule changes with the amount of text, but I want an option that always makes this frame-based. This is the same as drawing with no text in the text frame.
Thanks for reporting the issue. We are reviewing it

It's been nearly two years, is there any movement on this? This is incredibly frustrating with complex layouts that incorporate whitespace or inline images.

Definitely support this one – the fact that column rules do not extend the length of the text frame means that they have irregular lengths throughout a document, which isn't a design standard. We should have the option to A. Extend to frame height or B. Extend to text height, similar to the regular Rules, which can be based on column width or text width. As it stands now, I have to work-around by adding empty lines to extend the rules – not a clean solution! Thanks for implementing a feature that I have been requesting for years (albeit imperfectly).
