How come I see paragraph signs in my Word document?

by on January 24, 2010

Q: When I am typing dots and paragraph signs come up, but I clicked the office button then the options, and so on it does not change anything. When I click on the paragraph icon my words disappear. I also cannot print because it says there are no words in the document (ie the document is blank). What can I do to fix this?

    The ‘show formatting’ option is what makes all the dots and paragraph symbols show up. See this page for more information: http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/word/HA101022501033.aspx
