everytime i use microsoft word this symbol >¶ appears after every paragraph and a dot (·)appears between each word
i looked at all the symbols availiable to use and i found it in "special symbols" and is called a paragraph symbol and the dot is called a middle dot and is found in the ordinary symbols menu but i have no idea how to stop it from appearing all the time because it doesnt seem to be an option

pleasee help =D

Hi Roisen,

You're seeing the "formatting marks". Depending on your version of word, there should be a button visible on your toolbar with this symbol: ¶ That button toggles the formatting marks off and on.

You might also try the keyboard shortcut of ctrl+shift+* (asterisk)

In Word 2007, the formatting marks button is on the Home tab in the Paragraph group. If that doesn't work, click the "Office" button -> "Word Options" ->"Display" and clear the check-boxes of marks you don't want visible.
