Kate version 16.12
kate does not seem to have the ability to display control characters i.e. \n. This makes an otherwise great application useless for example inspecting or troubleshooting and input file during coding e.g. json. Could we have display option display of control characters?
\n is the newline character, which you can 'see' because the line breaks. Are you talking about a missing trailing newline at the end of the file? There is an option forcing it on save.
