UI Bug with Xcode's invisible characters in documentation comments
Feedback number: FB12128126
I like to display invisible characters in my text editors/IDEs because I want to know if the spaces I’m seeing are spaces or tabs. I also like to be able to tell immediately if I’m seeing multiple spaces or not.
Here is an example of what that looks like. Notice the grey dots between words.
In Xcode, you can find this in the Editor menu labeled as Invisibles.
Today I noticed that when using documentation comments, the invisibles are misaligned and lay on top of the characters instead of between them. I submitted a feedback, but I’m not sure it will ever be addressed so I wrote this post in case someone else runs into the same thing.
