Is it possible to add visual padding around a variable width character (generally too, I suppose)?
I've looked into using
buffer-display-table to accomplish this, but every solution using those two has been a hack that ultimately fakes adding padding around the character.
An example of what I am trying to accomplish:
##| 🍋| <-- I want this pipe to line up with the others ##| Another example: ####| ௵| ####|
Manually adding padding around the variable width characters above is what I'd like to do. I don't know if it's possible though.
I already have a 'working' solution where I can add a space character after the other char and then change the width of that space to line up the pipes. That isn't really 'padding' / 'margin' as it has the artifact of another character.
