I am using kubuntu and would like for kate to show me all whitespace.

enter image description here

  • Click Settings > Configure Kate... to bring up the Configure dialog.
  • Click Editor Component > Appearance.
  • In the Whitespace Highlighting section, check Highlight tabulators and Highlight trailing spaces.
  • In the Advanced section, check Show indentation lines.
  • Click OK.

It seems one cannot highlight leading spaces.

  • Besides that also colors may need to be adjusted in: Configure Kate... > Editor Component > Fonts & Colors. At "Colors" tab in "Text Decoration" section. – Mikaelblomkvistsson Dec 23 '18 at 15:05
