Working with Hidden Characters

Every time you tap the Spacebar, Tab key, Return key, or Enter key, you create an non-printing character in the text. These hidden characters, (sometimes called invisibles) can be turned on to let you see where the spaces, tab characters, and paragraph returns fall in the text.

To show or hide hidden characters:

  • Choose Type > Show Hidden Characters. This displays the characters in the same color as the highlight for the layer 61.gif.



  • Choose Type > Hide Hidden Characters to hide the hidden characters.

To change the colors of the hidden characters:

  • Change the Layer color in the Layers palette (see page 292).
