Editor showing dots in place of spaces

Post by ColinTaylor » Fri Oct 27, 2017 2:34 pm

Codelite 11.0.2 / Windows 10 (64-bit)

After changing some colour settings, code apperance has a dot in place of each space character

Code: Select all

...//.Set.the.fixed.printer.settings
...g_PrintData->SetOrientation.(wxPORTRAIT);
...g_PrintData->SetPaperId.(wxPAPER_A4);
...g_PageSetupData.=.new.wxPageSetupDialogData;
Whereas I would like the appearance to be (no dots in place of spaces)

Code: Select all

   // Set the fixed printer settings
   g_PrintData->SetOrientation (wxPORTRAIT);
   g_PrintData->SetPaperId (wxPAPER_A4);
   g_PageSetupData = new wxPageSetupDialogData;
Please can you tell me which setting I need to adjust?
Many thanks
Colin

It's the whitespace.
You can change it from settings->preferences->guides->whitespace visibility->invisible
Make sure you have read the HOW TO POST thread

Thats worked - many thanks.

This issue came about after I tried to save only the C++ settings
Settings -> Colours and Fonts -> Export Lexers -> select onlythe C++ Lexer, then save to (e.g.) MySettings.zip
The MySettings.zip file is empty and this does seem to be repeatable.

Settings -> Colours and Fonts -> Export All Lexers seems fine.

Regards, Colin

Confirmed. The ZIP file is indeed empty, can you please open a bug?
