I use tab a lot as delimiter, the default short symbol for tab is very difficult to see. By the way how can I change the color for tab symbol? With a dark background it took me minutes to realize show invisibles was actually turned on. Thanks.

You can’t make it look exactly like that, though in the invisibles settings I use , which makes my tabs look like this:

As far as styling your invisibles, you can add something like this to your styles.less:

atom-text-editor::shadow {
  .invisible-character {
    color: red;
  }
}

Which then makes my tabs look like this:

I hope that helps! :grinning:
