Options|Visualize Line Breaks

(available in EditPad Pro only)

Turn on Visualize Line Breaks in the Options menu if you always want to see a ¶ character (Pilcrow symbol) at the end of each paragraph, indicating the invisible line break character(s) at the end of each line. To change the color of the ¶ character, customize the color palette and change the “Editor: Line breaks” color. Instead of showing the generic ¶ character for all line breaks, EditPad Pro can show specific symbols that indicate the line break style. You can configure this on the Editor page in the Preferences.

If you turn off Options|Visualize Line Breaks, line break symbols are only displayed when line break characters are selected. They are then shown with colors for selected text in reverse. If you never want to see any line break symbols, turn off “always visualize line breaks in selected text” in the Editor Preferences.

Note that “visualize line breaks” is a file type specific setting in EditPad Pro. If you change the setting through the Options menu or the toolbar, it is applied to the active file only. If you create a new file or open an existing one then EditPad uses the setting you made on the Editor page for the type of file you are creating or opening. Also, when you use File|Save As to save the file as a different file type, the setting for the current file changes to what you specified for the new file type.
