Using Word 2000. Converted document from a Mac. We are

getting dots under the letters, numbers and symbols when

we type. The dots appear a lighter grey. Tried selecting

the text and doing Control + Spacebar. Tried copy and

pasting using unformatted text, but problem continues.

Even tried copy and paste special unformatted text into a

new blank document, and problem continues. Have you ever

heard of this before?

    • Usually in Word 2000 grey dots under words and numbers signifies Hidden text.

      Highlight a word with the dots under it and go to Format > Font to see if

      the Hidden text option is selected. If the text is hidden, deselect the

      attribute.

      For a quicker result, the shortcut key Shift + Control + H will toggle

      hidden text on and off for selected text (provided it hasn't been hijacked by

      some customisation).
