    The problem

    Sometimes i need to see the “Marks”
    (symbols for Spaces, Tabs and/or End of Line markers)

    But then again they disturb the view
    the very next second and i have to
    disable the view of this marks again quickly.
    (For that there is an macro for your assistance
    Toggle ALL marks at once (Space Tabs EOL EOF))


    But i have seen an very nifty implementation
    of displaying marks “just in time”:

    Have an option to show marks in selected text area!

    That works this way:
    – have the view of marks disabled
    – have the option “Show Marks In Selection” set
    – select an portion of text and see the marks at this block only

    What do you think?


    Show Marks (Space Tabs EOL) in Selection only

    I just realized that we can do that already at our own:

    1.) Enable all (or the wanted) whitespace marks from menu “View > Marks”
    2.) Go to menu “Tools > Properties for xxx Configuration”
    3.) Click the [Display] tab and select “Returns, tabs, EOL”
    4.) choose Text Color > Custom and set it to white
    (or to your chosen background color, if not default), (of course you could also set the color to a light grey for example)
    5.) close the dialog with the [OK] button

    Now the marks are invisible on normal work, but visible on selection only.

    To reset to default, just go to that setting dialog from step 4) again and click at [Default] instead.

    Thanks for making EmEditor.
