Description jbotte 2004-02-24 17:06:22 UTC
When I am displaying the non-printing characters, the "dot" that represents a
space is not displayed at the end of the line. I believe this is incorrect
behaviour because end-of-paragraph markers *are* displayed at the ends of lines. 

It also leads to uncertainty about whether or not there really is a space at the
end of the line because the display line can be wrapped if there is a hyphen in
a word, and apparently (and I think this is odd behaviour, but that's another
story...) when a parenthesis is in the middle of a word. In those cases, there
is no space at the end of the displayed line and the only way to find out
whether or not there is a space is to either press backspace (and if there is no
space it will delete the hyphen or parenthesis character and it will need to be
typed again... and if there is a space, the space will need to be typed again),
or to somehow insert or delete text so the word(s) at the point of the display
line wrap move away from the edge of the window so the space (or lack) can be
seen with a nonprinting character "dot" (or lack).

Sorry about that...

Would it be possible to put the words "non-printing characters" in the Summary
of Issue 20878? Maybe there would be less duplicates (I searched for the list of
words "non AND printing AND character" and did not come up with that issue or
any of its duplicates).

closing duplicate.
I don't think that people will seach for non-printing characters like you did.
All of the other issues only contain "space" or "whitespace" character in the
summary, since the issue is a PCD-Issue I don't want to touch the summary..
