Enhance display of space/newline in Author mode

Post by steve.cuzner » Fri Nov 17, 2017 10:12 pm

If you are authoring a mixed content element and insert an inline element and it happens to be at the end of the line and thus wraps, it it hard to tell if there is a space, which in this context would be significant.

Code: Select all

                <para><guidropdown>Alphabetically by block name</guidropdown>. Sorts blocks
alphabetically by<argument>foo</argument> their names.</para>
In the above snip there is not space between by and <argument> but in Author mode it happens to break the line between the text and element making it difficult to see that significant space is missing.

Hi Steve,

I agree, we had previous reports from users who do not want Oxygen to break before or after inline element start tags if there are no spaces there. I added your comments on the opened internal issue, if we manage to implement it in a future version I will update this forum thread.

Hi,

We released Oxygen 20.1 which should have better handling for such cases.
