Does NWP support hidden characters? Useful for finding double spaces between words, shifted vs. unshifted carriage returns, etc.

If not, what is the strategy?

Also Menu Bar > View > Show Invisibles.

I have assigned the keyboard short cut command-option-i-i to mine for convenience in switching on and off.

It would be great if there were options for which invisibles to show - I like to see tabs & line breaks but having every single space displayed is often too much clutter.
