Show text control characters setting does not work
« on: May 04, 2017, 07:04:41 pm »
I just installed Scribus 1.5.3svn on a Windows 7 machine.

I prefer to see tab and paragraph markers as I work, so I went to File/Preferences/Display and placed a check next to "Show text control characters".  They were not visible when I returned to the document I was working on, so I quit Scribus and restarted; but the change did not take effect even with a restart.

Am I missing something?  Thanks!

hi southwindows
…I went to File/Preferences/Display and placed a check next to "Show text control characters".  They were not visible when I returned to the document…

with 'preferences', you define your standard settings for new documents.
the settings of an existing document can be changed with 'file' → 'document setup → '…'

…the two different menu entries can be a bit confusing for scribus beginners.
