[Issue 106500] allow to show nonprinting characters like in writer also in calc

Peter Kovacs-3
Does anyone know why this is marked as won't fix? There is no reason or
decision noted.

Edwin just said that it's not useful for him. He was sometimes very
strict when judging BZ issues.

But I also cannot see a good use case for seeing non-pritable characters
in cells.

We do get occasional problems on the EN forum where a stray trailing non
printing character causes unexpected problems with some formulae. I
don't know how much of an issue it would be to add this, but if it is
comparatively simple I'd support it; as I suspect would a few others who
spend time on the forum.

Cheers -- David Robley There are some that are wise. And there are
others that are otherwise.

Yea, it is useful for data cleansing. So question is, do we scope this in?

I am not sure, if it is not more something that "belongs" to base.
However I also think base and calc are relatives.

For me both are more or less the same, but I am sure most would not agree.


All the best

I've reopened the issue. But please note that this doesn't mean that
there it is fast solution to gett this integrated this also into Calc -
or other modules.
