Show/Hide Formatting Marks in Office 2011

      Sometimes when you are editing a Microsoft Word document, your text will line up oddly and it’s not really clear what is going on. Seeing the formatting marks (tab, paragraph returns, spaces, etc.) can really help.

To show or hide these normally invisible "characters"... 

a)  click on the Paragraph icon on the File toolbar.


b)  Use the keyboard shortcut:  CMD+8
 (Hold down command key and press 8.)   
Repeat to hide the characters.

Note:  Even when you can see these marks, they do not print.
