Description kAlvaro 2012-01-13 16:45:32 UTC
The "Show Non-printable Characters" feature displays a ΒΆ symbol (U+00B6) to indicate the end of file. Since it's the same symbol used for line feeds, it's confusing and makes it difficult to spot whether the file ends with a carriage return.

This old bug may not be relevant anymore. If you can still reproduce it in 8.2 development builds please reopen this issue.

Thanks for your cooperation,
