Computer question

ivamaeNovember 8, 2012

Can anyone tell me why " Word" is doing this? I run windows XP

Between every word it is putting a period and another special symbol at the end of each thing I type. That sign is there at the begining when I first start but moves to the end when i am finished. I tried to copy and paste it here but it pasted without a problem?????

Hope some one can help me.

It sounds like you are seeing the formatting symbols. I don't know what version of Word you have, but on the Home ribbon, look at the Paragraph section and find the symbol for a paragraph (or put your mouse on each symbol until you find the one that says Show/Hide) and click on that. See if that doesn't take away the symbols.

Or try this, if that doesn't work..

Click the Office button (big colorful circle, top right.

Select WORD OPTIONS - lower left/middle of the window.

Then select DISPLAY on the next windows that comes up. Make sure everything is unchecked under "Always show these formatting marks on the screen."
