Is there any way to change the color of the "⏎" sign after output of echo -n a (or any command which doesn't have \n at the end of the result)?

It's unreadable if using black background.


There is an enter mark after ->, but it's hard to find it.


No, there is no way at present to change the color of that character. See the omitted_newline_char symbol in the src/screen.cpp source. It is currently hardcoded to what should be a light grey color visible on most terminals. You're welcome to open an enhancement request. Even better would be to submit a change for review that makes this configurable without breaking the current behavior.
