EOL marker display

There are two types of CRLF display:

  • mono mode, when only one kind of line break used. In this case, the line break has drawn as single char same color as white space
  • mixed mode, when several kinds of line break used. In this case, the line break has drawn as explicit EOL char symbols indicating line break style of every line. In this case, color of background corresponds to lighted forecolor of the white space character and forecolor corresponds to background color of the white space
You can configure to always show full representation of end of line markers using XML flag

You can not reach the same color for line break in mixed mode, because of the mentioned shifting to the lighter of the white space forecolor for the background of the mixed LB drawing. That also makes sense, while it will be really dark and emphasized.

Be aware, that white space style actually layered on top of window base. So, bottom color for text will be window text color, and if you set white space alpha to 100% it actually will be black (with the default color scheme), as window text color. See more details about style layering here.
