    Recently I typed a new Word document and somehow I couldn't print it. It offered Safe Mode so I tried that.

    Now not just the new documents but ALL my Word documents have funny little paragraph-looking symbols scattered throughout and dots between every single word. How do I fix this?

    Thanks in advance.

    In your toolbar, click the pilcrow (the backward paragraph looking thing). That should fix the problem.

    Found it and it worked. Thank you. Sometimes the simplest errors can be the hardest to fix. I probably hit that little paragraph icon out of desperation. All is calm now, and I know what to do if it happens again.
