    Gremlins tracker for Visual Studio Code: reveals invisible whitespace and other annoying characters

    PHPStorm detects \u3164 "HANGUL FILLER" but VS Code does not. I tried using the Gremlins plugin, but looks like it currently doesn't detect this confusable. Is there any alternative plugin or setting in VS code to help detect these characters?
