    • These don't print. They may indicate that you are pressing the Enter key for

      spacing instead of properly formatting your paragraphs with space before and

      space after. I leave their display on because they explain things that would

      otherwise be mysteries.

      Ctrl - Shift - 8 toggles non-printing characters on and off.

      Otherwise, Tools > Options > View

    • The backward p () is called a pilcrow. You can click on the Show/Hide icon

      on the toolbar. When you find that you are having formatting problems, you

      can turn them back on.

    • See http://word.mvps.org/FAQs/Formatting/NonPrintChars.htm for information

      on why you would sometimes want to see nonprinting characters.
