Solved: Dots between words in MS Word '11 Mac - DOESN'T work
Hello all,

I have had this problem for a while, and after a few frustrating hours of not being able to figure it out, I resorted to using Pages for a few weeks. Don't get me wrong, Pages is great, but Word seems to have more customization to it.

Now, incase you didn't get it from the title, here's my problem:

I'm [trying to] use Microsoft Word 2011 on my Mac.

When I type, small dots appear between all of my words.

I searched around on the internet for a bit, and people told me [and other users] to click the button. I tried this, but it didn't work. All it did was make s appear next to all the lines of text. And when I clicked the button again, all the s went away, but the dots stayed.

Now, with the school year getting busier by the day, I want a good program to do my work with.


It would be absolutely fantastic if anyone here could give me some help on this.


Thanks,
Tristan

Do these "dots" print when you print out a copy?

I do NOT have 2010, but in 2007 try the following

I think you may have the "Spaces" turned on within the "Options" area, then the Display tab and the in the "Always show these formatting marks...". If there is a check mark by any of the list other than "Show all formatting marks" then remove them.

Thank you so much!

Your instructions were a little different than what I had to do, but thanks to you, I figured it out!

I have not seen a copy of Office for the Mac, so I was not sure if things are similar or not.

If the is solved, then you need to select the "Solved" button when you are viewing this thread.

Glad to be of help.
