Support for different line endings in SQL editor/BLOB editor

I know this sounds quite advanced and over-the-top for an SQL editor like DBeaver, but esp. when editing text or text-based BLOBs (e.g. proprietary text-based but very strict message formats), it is sometimes necessary to have line endings in a certain format (e.g. CR+LF \r\n or only CR or NULL at the end etc.).

Therefore, it would be very helpful if DBeaver supported different line endings and could convert between them.

Copy&Pasting e.g. CR+LF-formatted content works fine though, the HEX editor shows 0A 0D are contained in the text.

Generally it is possible to configure line feed characters. I'll try to add new options in LOB editor preferences.
However there are many other problems with editing binary data as text.
Main is character encodings, another one is problem with zero characters (which are threated as line end by standard text editor controls).
If you have some particular suggestions how to configure binary editor - please tell.
