Ok, I'll try opening the Preview window and leaving it open. The current project should be a good test; I'm combining 24+ books that I get as 1 html page per book, about 400k+ per book.

Thank you for explaining this.

And thanks again, DiapDealer and KevinH, for all the refinements in 0.9.14. I am having a crappy week (unrelated to epubs) and having 0.9.14 to play with is just what I need to keep my spirits up

Also thank you BeckyEbook for the pull request to enable docking the validation window at the top of the screen.

Sigil developers are the best!

    special_space_format  .setUnderlineStyle(QTextCharFormat::DashUnderline);


My idea:

Code:
    QPen outline(special_space_format.textOutline());
    outline.setBrush(m_codeViewAppearance.xhtml_entity_color);
    outline.setWidthF(1.0);
    outline.setStyle(Qt::SolidLine);
    special_space_format.setTextOutline(outline);
    special_space_format.setUnderlineColor(m_codeViewAppearance.xhtml_entity_color);
    special_space_format.setUnderlineStyle(QTextCharFormat::SingleUnderline);
Thanks Becky and Kevin for this work on such a subject.

If I understood correctly (I got a little help about it), I can now get rid of my "160" preserved entity in the Preferences.

As you may know, French are particularly sensitive about no-break spaces because they have to make an intensive use of them. We use nbsp and nnbsp (coded in their own ways).

Replacing the original two short underlines (Kevin's own) with one bold underline (Becky's own) seems better for visibillity.

Would it be possible to go one step further (à la Calibre) and display a yellow highlight (see screenshot) ? I think the visibility would be even better.

I just tested it with my user dark mode qt styles/custom preview removed, and native dark mode is much improved, however it is very stripy. Its the dark background contrasted with light grey that I find distracting within the lines. Also black text on dark background in preview/book view. I can change that with the custom preview style. I will do some more adjustments.

We'll take the suggestions for the "special space" placeholder character under advisement. Though I hesitate to consider a colored highlight since that could easily get lost in a user's customization of the Code View background.

I have to say I'm a little surprised by the request for "less subtlety," though. I mean; if you require a hit-me-over-the-head there's-a-non-breaking-space-lurking-right-here type of thing in Code View, doesn't a highly visible html entity already fit the bill? How is a super-fat, yellow glowing underline more aethetically pleasing than the html entity that's always been available?

Just put   or   back in your Preserve Entities list if you need quickly recognizable, super visible, no-break-spaces in Code View. Amiright?

I could agree with you if it was just about aesthetics. The point is that it is just about view.

If Becky has been able to change the sign, maybe it would be possible to provide a command that would insert an -ugly if you say so- but visible yellow highlight?

I'm sorry, but I still don't quite understand. The non-breaking space entity renders identically to the non-breaking space character in all rendering/reading systems. So the notion of entities vs characters is ALWAYS about aesthetics (and aesthetics only) when it comes to viewing html code in Code View (after the code has been successfully entered, I mean). And because of that, I don't get why seeing fat glowing underlines would be preferable to seeing an html entity.

If it's about being able to differentiate between a normal space character and a non-breaking space character (and I've seen nothing to suggest it's anything but), I get that. They look identical in Code View. That's why we included the dotted-dash in the first place. And that's why it's "subtle." If the solution isn't ultimately about subtlety and personal aesthetics, then I see no point in eradicating the no-break-space entity from your code in the first place. Why replace one visible aberration for another visible aberration in Code View in that case?

If it's about being able to type no-break-space characters with a French keyboard more easily, then the new feature solves that problem quite handily. If after typing them, however, you need to be able to identify them more quickly than the current double-dash allows you to do, what harm in allowing Sigil to convert them to entities automatically for you? And the answer is, of course: "No harm." None at all save for aesthetics reasons.

As I said, we'll take it under advisement, but I simply don't see the point in trading one highly-visible flag for another highly visible flag. Not when they're both being used to point out the same pothole.

Becky's only been able to "change the sign" by patching Sigil's source code and recompiling Sigil. Which anyone is free to do if they like.

I'm afraid, this topic drifted a bit. It's not about "Why?" but about "How?".

My question was: is it possible to change easily this bold underline for a yellow highlight?

If it's possible easily, let me know please how to do it and I'll take care of it.
If it's not possible, let's drop it.

Depends. How good are you at editing c++ and compiling it on Windows?

See above. And see Qt documentation.

Sure. I'm not the one who brought it up in the first place, and I'm not that interested in changing it globally anyway.

Thanks for the feedback and image! Yes, I agree with you about the stripy-ness. I do believe that different highlighting for alternate lines is controllable in the code. I will look into it.

It is possible but using a background "highlight" like calibre would require a bit of a overhaul as Calibre has its own dark/light modes (which changes the background colour used to highlight), whereas Sigil lets Qt handle that for us so setting a fixed background colour to "highlight" anything would be a mistake. Having a similar visual appearance between Sigil and calibre is not a goal either project is striving for.

So setting a background colour (a space has no foreground colour) is not something we will be doing.

Looking more closely the alternating colours are all in Tables/TreeViews, etc.

From snooping in the Sigil code, I see the following:
Code:
Kevins-MacBook-Pro:Sigil kbhend$ grep setAlternatingRowColors `find ./ -name "*.cpp"`
.//src/Dialogs/ClipEditor.cpp:    ui.ClipEditorTree->setAlternatingRowColors(true);
.//src/Dialogs/DeleteFiles.cpp:    ui.Table->setAlternatingRowColors(true);
.//src/Dialogs/DeleteStyles.cpp:    ui.Table->setAlternatingRowColors(true);
.//src/Dialogs/IndexEditor.cpp:    ui.IndexEditorTree->setAlternatingRowColors(true);
.//src/Dialogs/PreferenceWidgets/SpellCheckWidget.cpp:    ui.userDictList->setAlternatingRowColors(true);
.//src/Dialogs/SearchEditor.cpp:    ui.SearchEditorTree->setAlternatingRowColors(true);
.//src/Dialogs/SpellcheckEditor.cpp:    ui.SpellcheckEditorTree->setAlternatingRowColors(true);
This is not new. The Sigil code has always used these settings.

In a stylesheet you should look to change or add the "alternate-background-color" property for QTableView, QTableWidget, QTreeView, and QTreeWidget.

See https://doc.qt.io/qt-5/stylesheet-reference.html for more details.

Hope this helps.
