I've tried a long time to find a way to make the tiny dots bigger or 
change color, that show empty spaces between characters.

Not sure if the size of empty space dots are controlled by the font 
If so, there's little difference in dozens of Linux fonts, for size of 
spaces indicators - even if bold is selected.  Generally, I use some 
mono bold font.

No idea if "spaces dots" color can be specified in a Geany color scheme, 
or if they're set to the same color as some other characters or...?
Often I can't see some empty space dots unless I move close to the 
monitor.  Those with perfect vision probably don't notice this.

Periods are often not big enough or enough contrast for scanning or 
editing code.
Some fonts (e.g., mono on bold) may make periods or single quote / 
apostrophe a little bigger, but not much.

When I eliminate all fonts that don't put a slash or dot in zeroes, 
there aren't many left to find one with larger empty spaces dots or 
larger periods / commas, unless I choose a huge font size.

What "symbols" in the symbol list font selection does Geany preferences 
refer to?
