Insert non-copyable character

I am taking some programming notes, and the source code lines are too long. I want to insert a character to mark the end of the line when I print the paper, but I want to be able to copy the source code without those characters.

Does libreoffice allow me to do something like this?

Are you looking for symbols like ⏎ or ␤? Please edit your question (don't use an answer) to better describe your expected result. If possible, attach a screenshot or a picture of a hand-written note to give an example. Also, mention your OS and LO version. Solution may depend on the OS.

Not an answer, but some cludge that might or might not be helpful:

If you need the character(s) be only visible in print, then you may use a character style with Hidden font effect: if you set hidden characters to be printed (in OptionsWriterPrint), but not show on screen (in OptionsWriterFormatting Aids), then you won't see them on screen (and be unable to copy them to clipboard), but have them printed.

The additional drawback is it would be not easy to manage (you won't see where you had already added the characters, and where you didn't).
