Summary0009615: Find a way to display all kind of spaces (thin, thick, mid, etc) differently when "Show Control Character" is enabled
DescriptionScribus is only displaying non breaking spaces and spaces differently (when 0009614 will be fixed). There should be a way of displaying all kind of spaces in order to make the difference between them.
Steps To ReproduceChoose a font with special spaces and type some text in a text frame. Check the view > show control character option.
Additional InformationAn old version of quark had symbols for every kind of spaces. The problematic is finding enough different symbols that fit in really small "space" (such as thin space) which can be recognized. Maybe there's a way of combining colors and basic shapes (filled circle, circle, rectangles).

If I can propose something for this...
red chars such as f,n,m with underline

I would prefer a |___| shape for (fixed) spaces. NBSPACE and SPACE can keep their rings.
