I recently accidentally hit some sort of keyboard combination on my Toshiba U400. Now all my MS Word documents (2007) have strange symbols like a mirror image P and lots of dashes and arrows.. How do I get rid of this?
Most likely you do. Those are your little friends, they show you where your paragraphs end. Follow these steps to turn them off :
1. Click the office button > word options > on the left side of the dialog box, click display > under always show these formatting marks on the screen, put a check mark next to paragraph marks > make sure that all the other entries in this section are unchecked > click Ok
2. Click the button with this Ã‚Â¶ sign on the formatting tool bar
I am not at all knocking it, I just asked to see if I understood the problem correctly. I was somewhat confused and reasoned to myself that if this was about "Ã‚Â¶", then they would have probably put it so ("Ã‚Â¶"). Yes, it does kind of look like a backwards "P".
