I need to see the space characters but I can't set it for the life of me.
I went to customize the
Whitespace Display Mapping and this is what I found. Notice that the mapping for the space is set to be ".". It doens't work of course:
INS DEL Character Mapping: Char Kind: Value Menu Space Char: Vector List: INS DEL : Vector Characters: INS DEL Char: . INS INS ...
I even included this into .emacs
(setq whitespace-display-mappings '((space-mark 32 ) (newline-mark 10 [36 10]) (tab-mark 9 [187 9] [92 9])))
Maybe someone know what is the problem here? I just want the whitespace overlay to show the " " character as a ".".
Thanks for your time and help in advance.
