Don’t you hate it when you can see all those “backwards Ps” all throughout your Word document.  There are probably lots of other marks in your document too… like arrows, dots and more.

These are what we call paragraph marks and formatting symbols – or what others sometimes call “codes”.  You can show or hide these marks, symbols and codes really quickly.  All you need to do is:

  1. Make sure you are on the “Home” tab in the ribbon
  2. Look for the “Paragraph” group
  3. Click on the icon that looks like the “Backwards P”

Or next time you can use the shortcut key which is CTRL+SHIFT+8.

’till next time!
