I using Notepad++ as editor. When I open any text file, at the end of any line, Notepad++ shows two virtual characters CR and LF. These characters are annoying in some case, for example when reading application logs.

How do I remove or configure these characters?

Toggle the setting View > Show Symbol > Show End of Line

As Xenorose notes, Show All Characters should also be unchecked.

You got there a few seconds before me. :) it should be noted that it might be the "all characters" that's marked. – Eran Apr 8 '12 at 9:00
i dont have that option checked, but LF is still showing. If i toggle the option, i get LF and CR, if i turn it off again, im back to just LF at the end of the lines. is this a bug? – mack nordstrum Aug 29 '14 at 21:35
hmmm, i saved the document and closed notepad++ then re-opened it, and the LFs went away, must have been a temporary glitch – mack nordstrum Aug 29 '14 at 21:46

In the menu go to :
view > Show Symbols
You probably have one of these checked: "Show end of line" or "show all characters" . Uncheck them (only one can be selected, deselect the one you have checked).
