Thanks, but LibreOffice does have its vertical ruler. 

Both rulers were set off by default [1] and there is a unfulfilled request for
AOO to do the same [2], for LibreOffice the horizontal ruler was re-enabled by
default for bug 87923 [3].  

Both rulers can be adjusted from main menu View -> Rulers, or set in profile
from Tools -> Options -> LibreOffice Writer -> View. Also Vertical ruler can be
set left edge (default) or positioned on right edge, its measurement units can
be adjusted. And once set in profile settings will be remembered.

Were a visual adjustment of gutters and 3d edge made as requested here,
placement of the rulers (horizontal and vertical) would need to be considered
as well (i.e. floating vs. affixed to edge when active, or other handling of
the GUI element).
