Show/Hide Marks

Show/Hide Marks

MS Words offers the facility to view otherwise hidden formatting marks including paragraph marks, page and section breaks, tabs and index entries. Errors are more easily seen which is particularly important at the editing stage. It is important to note that some of these marks especially the index entries occupy a space that moves the text onwards when the marks are displayed and if left ‘seen’ will cause problems especially with index entries.

The show/hide button is located in the Home tab of the Ribbon in the top right-hand corner of the paragraph box.
