I hope I don't get yelled at again for asking, but...

I seems to have an issue activating Eclipse features at random and than I am unable to remove them.
My editor is showing ALL characters - spaces , line feeds etc.
I do not now how it started and have searched for ways to remove this feature.
I guess the real issue is - what is the name of it ? I could probably Google for it if I know the name.

I have similar issue with window / dialog announcing an error and asking if I want to "send it". My code runs so I have no use fro this funky error.
This dialog goes away after while, so it is not a big issue.

Any constructive help will be appreciated.

It seems that you have the Show whitespace characters selection on.

Go to the main Preferences page. It is in most setups in the Window menu, on OS X it is in the Eclipse menu.

Select General -> Editors -> Text editors.

Thanks for your help, much appreciated.
Found it but not sure if the menus are working correctly.
It may be under Editor - Structured Editors - Editor in Oxygen.
But the key is to know the term / name - "whitespace" .
I did search in help and it found it OK.
