Here is a simple but very powerful little feature, especially when you deal with white spaces as much as Sara did, when she tested the editor. The first time she saw one of her developers using it, she thought, “Yuck!” But now she can’t live without it.

There are two ways to enable this feature:

  • From the menu bar, goto Edit-Advanced-View White Space.
  • from the keyboard, press Ctrl+R, Ctrl+W.

View visible white space

Note that this command is available only when a file is open. Even though this command is shown only in the menu, the visible white space setting persists for all files and all Visual Studio launches.

Happy Programming! =)
