Hex view instead of "mnemonic" view for non-visibile / printing characters?

    I have no interest in a hex editor, but I would REALLY like to be able to view "special characters" in hex or decimal rather than as mnemonics, e.g. [009] rather than [TAB], [013] instead of [CR], and so on.

    Is this already a feature in Notepad++?

    Is there already an add-on that does this?

    Nope, and it is not a feature in Scintilla either. Please ask that project for it, as it is the Scintilla ccomponent which draws al characters, including these non-printables.
    If they choose to do so, then a subsequent upgrae of Notepad++ will have the feature - openly in UI or via messages/macros/scripts.
