How do I show indentation guides in TextMate?

Anyone knows if there is a bundle for this? There's no setting, obviously.

There is a menu item somewhere, or a preference settings called "show invisible characters".

That's what is used in TextMate to show indentation levels: you get a little gray triangle at each tab.

I'm sorry if I'm not more precise, I'm on my linux box at home. But I'm sure you'll find it easily.


The menu item is labeled "Show Invisibles", it's located under the "View" menu and its shortcut is I.
