Hidden Characters

Is it possible to turn on display of hidden characters (space, tab, return etc.)?



No, that function is not available. Scrivener uses Apple’s rich text editor to handle text, and that display has no such capability.

Exactly. Unfortunately only certain fonts on OS X support this anyway (word processors such as Word add their own), so this is something we have to wait and see if a future version of OS X adds.

I’ll add my vote for a future inclusion of a “show hidden characters” feature, understanding that you’re building within OSX constraints. Over the years I’ve found that extremely valuable for tracking down formatting anomalies and fine-tuning page breaks.
