I'm looking to set a separator between the status-left and window list sections of the tmux status bar. Is there something similar to how you can set a separator between windows with setw -g window-status-separator string? I want to set the background color of status-left and have some padding between that and the beginning of the window list.

For example, looking for a seperator like the ones between the windows but between status left (in blue) and the first window.

Maybe not what you are after but in tmux 3.1c, I have this on .tmux.conf for magenta border: set -g pane-active-border-style 'bg=default fg=#FF00FF'
