Non Printable Characters!

Dan Stauffer 6 years ago • updated by Chris Gilligan 5 years ago 1
It would be extremely helpful if you could  build in the functionality to display non printable characters ( and be able to remove them).  When copying and pasting text from Photoshop,  Hidden line breaks and other characters will often be inserted but not displayed in Sublime.   My current work flow is to copy and paste into Textmate - remove the non printable characters ( displayed as diamonds in Textmate ) and then paste into Sublime.

incorporating the strings command would be sufficient... would work for osx and linux

e.g.

strings -n 1 data.txt > clean-data.txt


also there is a strings for windows

which uses the same commands.
