Now you see them, now you don’t!!!
Many times when we are editing a document in Word, we notice some characters that are not supposed to be there, and that we are sure that we didn’t type them. Nothing to worry about!!! These are all the nonprinting characters that appear in our document in order to help us with the layout of our document. We can show paragraph marks and other hidden formatting symbols in order for them to help us. Some users find these marks too confusing and not understandable, but the thing is that they are very useful.
It is just a simple click away in order for them to appear or not. Below I will describe how can they be shown or not with a simple click, or if we want to be more specific in what special character to appear or not.
