I have LibreOffice Version:

I've played around a little with Tools > Options > Appearance to get Writer look the way I want. However, I'm stuck with the color for non-printing characters such as the space between words and the symbol used to indicate a paragraph end. In the image, they're blue. How can I change their color?

Not possible for now.

There is a bug request:Bug 58674 - VIEWING: Customizable Nonprinting Character appearance

And a long discussion in ML:Light-Blue-for-Non-printing-characters

Thanks to m.a.riosv:

As can be seen in:
the NON_PRINTING_CHARACTER_COLOR is now defined just once in /sw/source/core/inc/txtfrm.hxx; with one additional entry in inftxt.cxx for DrawTab. So a simple hack for anyone wishing to change the color of NPC and role their own.

So, you can roll your own.

If this helps then please tick the answer (✔).
