Tech Tips: By Ed

If you see things like dots between words and paragraph symbols where you have hit <return>, look at the menu bar across the top of your Word screen and you will see a Paragraph symbol.

If the paragraph symbol is highlighted, simply click on it and the highlighting will go away. Your document should no longer show any formatting marks. This can also be accomplished by simply hitting, control> and * (<shift> 8) together.

Be aware that, although these formatting marks show in your on-screen document, they will not carry over to the printed version.
