Double space

Postby cintiarella » Fri Apr 29, 2011 6:31 pm

Hi, my question is, in fact, very simple, but I couldn t find it in the forum. I have ignore double space activated when I type, and that s very usefull, but I need to see where the double spaces are in an already typed text. I used one version once wich pointed in blue, as selected, where this double spaces were. Is there any way to activate that function in my version? 3.3.0 ? Thanks a lot for your help!

Try / View / Non-printing Characters. This command turns a special display on and also off. You will see double spaces as two little (non-printing) dots between the words. Either Language Tool or Linguist extension (can't remember which) will underline two spaces with a green(?) underline.
