Description Mikayla Hutchinson [MSFT] 2013-07-16 20:51:26 UTC
It would be nice to have an option to enable the whitespace markers (in red) only for "unusual" whitespace:
* tabs after non-tabs
* trailing whitespace
* mixed tabs and spaces in indents

Marking as confirmed. This is a pretty useful feature. Looping in Vaclav too.

Yes please, that would be really good. Mike, ping me please when you're here so that we can work on colors and appearance in general. Thanks!
