  1. Open the File in Sublime Editor,
  2. Make sure you have installed the package RawLineEdit,
  3. Now press: Command (Control for Windows) + Shift + P and type Raw Line Edit: View Line Ending,
  4. Note this will work only for saved file and not a unsaved tab with some text in it,
  5. You sould see and new section that shows the line ending character details.
