Hide formatting marks in Word 2007

by on December 1, 2008

Q: I have Word 2007 running on Windows Vista. It has suddenly started putting paragraph signs and dots between words. How do I stop this?

A: In Word 2007, go to the Home tab and then look in the Paragraph section. Find and click on the ¶ symbol. This should re-hide the marks & symbols that are normally hidden.

If that idea fails, click on the circular Office Button, which is located in the upper-left corner. Then go Word Options => Display => Always show these formatting marks on the screen.

TIP: Microsoft Office documents often remember text that you’ve deleted. To protect your privacy, consider going Office Button => Prepare => Inspect Document in Office 2007 before saving documents that could contain sensitive information.
