Chapter 3. Working with Word > Showing/Hiding Non-printing Characters

Showing/Hiding Non-printing Characters

Non-printing characters indicate where you ended a paragraph, pressed , or pressed (Figure 3.8). You can show or hide non-printing characters as you work on a Word document. Being able to see non-printing characters is especially helpful when you're trying to locate multiple tab characters where only one should be or when you're looking for errant punctuation, such as blank paragraphs or extra spaces. See Table 3.2 for a complete list of non-printing characters.

Figure 3.8. When displayed, non-printing characters are a faint gray.
