request: show invisibles in the find and replace dialogue

The title says it all. tabs in the find and replace appear as line breaks, and you can't always tell how many spaces are there. It would be nice if the find and replace dialogue could show all invisible characters

Good idea – and hopefully easy to add, so I definitely second this. :)

I wholeheartedly agree. I often use "Find and Replace" to strip double or triple paragraphs or unwanted tabs. It would indeed be much nicer to see the blue invisible symbols that you see in the text also in the F&R window
