How to display special characters, like tabs ?
« on: January 13, 2015, 04:23:55 AM »
Update: I deleted the text of the original post
Reason:  found it -  it is displayed as    \t   in the 'Excerpt' column.
It would be nice if the buton [Highlight] above the preview would highlight
All special characters, not limited to wordwrap.

Just a suggestion.

Under [Modify Format/Case], allow to add specific 'user definied' replacements
like  
replace \t with space
replace new line (\n) with space.
replace carriage return (\r) with space

set as preset

Nice idea regarding user defined replacements which might be suitable for you is that you CAN save entire formatting configurations as Presets and load them, from the Presets menu.
Note that this will affect all the settings on all tabs of the Format/Modify dialog.
