Before reading the file I immediately thought of one method.
 

Spoiler

 

Text is invisible when written in the background color.
Specify the type color to be white, and the page appears to be blank.
It's revealed by selecting All (CNTL-a).

In this case, the characters appear as spaces, each of the lines having its own length.

One possibility is the lengths of the lines are integers that index the alphabet.

Soo

Spoiler

I got the same blank/tab from the file.

.-..-...
.--..-.-
.--.--..
.--.--..
.--.----
.-....-.
.-..----
.-.-..--
.-.-..--

Not sure how to interpret them as Morse Code or Wabun Code.

One way of splitting yields

AUS
ADK
AKD
AKD
AKO
ASR
AUO
ARW
ARW

And I see no way to get a single character for each line out of that output. There aren't Morse equivalents for Unicode AFAIK.

And any line could be split differently for e.g. .-..-... can be split as

AUS: .-/..-/...

or RRI: .-./.-./..

or RAS: .-./.-/...
