Hi Yanjie! SourceTree does not highlight the spaces in the diff-view, it can show you the lines where whitespaces have been modified, but will not highlight them. 

If you'd like to have that option available,you're welcome to submit a Feature request at, by clicking on Create. This will be available publicly so other users can vote for it and add their comments.

Hope this helps :)


Thanks for your reply.

Did you submit a feature request @Yanjie Liu (if yes can you link it)? I'm also interested in this.

It seems nobody did it ever since 2013, so I have reopened a new Feature request here :

So, now, you can vote for it, @Ivan Schütz!
