EOL marker
« on: October 25, 2014, 07:10:51 pm »
I finally got white spaces to be the color I like.  I prefer them very close to the color of the background.  When I tried to set the color darker, it kept making it lighter, I'm guessing as part of the contrast feature, which is very nice, otherwise.  After fiddling for a while, restarting HE, the space and tabs magically appear the way I like, but now the CR/LF marker changed to bright blue text blocks "CRLF" .... did I do that somehow?

Just after posting here I changed an unrelated setting, "currentline frame" in the color scheme settings, and now all my white spaces are the light blue color that only CRLF was before.

Hi,

there are two types of CRLF display:
  • mono mode, when only one kind of line break used. In this case line break drawn as single char same color as white space
  • mixed mode, when several kinds of line break used. In this case line break drawn as two chars indicating line break style of every line. In this case, color of background corresponds to lighted fore color of the white space character and fore color corresponds to background color of the white space

"Current Line Frame" shall not influence the CRLF color.
You can not reach same color for line break in mixed mode, because of the mentioned shifting to lighter of the white space fore color for background of the mixed LB drawing. That also makes sense, while it will be really dark and emphasized. I also do no want to introduce new style for that and make configuration even more harder.

Also try Contrast setting in Color Scheme page (Do not Change), to get exactly that color that you configured (but still in some areas there are hardcoded shifts in color you can not influence).

You also need to be aware, that white space style actually layered on top of window base. So, bottom color for text will be window text color, and if you set white space alpha to 100% it actually will be black (with default color scheme), as window text color. See more details about style layering here.

If you need more deeper analysis, please provide example screenshots explaining problem + your data folder (color scheme + syntax settings).

I have verified and not see problems with my setup...

BR, Alex.

Have you tried "dark" color scheme?
I assume, here, because of the auto lightning it will work not as expected. I will check how to solve this automatically in this case.
