Troubleshooting

Hiding and Revealing Field Codes

My document is filled with field codes, but I sometimes have a hard time locating them. On more than one occasion, I've accidentally wiped out a crucial field code while editing some other text, because I didn't know the code was there.

Normally, field codes are hidden on screen, and their locations are invisible except for a gray shading that appears when you select the code's location. You can show all field codes in a document by pressing Ctrl+A and then pressing Alt+F9. To make the location of field codes visible at all times without showing the codes themselves, choose Tools, Options, click the View tab, and change the Field Shading option from its default When Selected to Always. Note that this shading will appear in printed copies of pages that contain fields; you'll probably want to turn field shading off before sending a document to the printer.
