Thank you.

Update: you can see whitespace character BEFORE creating a pull request. AFTER it's created - you can't.

It would be really useful to have this back as well, specially with diffs in YAML files for example, having being able to spot this during review has been super useful.

Found the issue that @johny b raised here:, will definitely vote for this.
