Bug ID: 102350
           Summary: Formatting Marks: Default settings
           Product: LibreOffice
           Version: Master
          Hardware: All
                OS: All
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: medium
         Component: Writer
            Blocks: 102187, 102345

By default LO shows the following formatting marks ( Tools > Options >
LibreOffice Writer > Formatting Aids > Display of )

* Paragraph end
* Soft hyphens
* Spaces
* Non-breaking spaces
* Tabs
* Breaks

and hides

* Hidden text

I think that non-breaking spaces and soft hyphens should be hidden and hidden
text should be shown. The display of non-breaking characters and soft hyphens
as gray highlights causes more harm than benefit in its current broken state
(bug 58434) and without hidden text enabled, hidden text would never be visible
to users until they first new to enable this in the options dialog.
