Seeing the Unseen
So, if you followed yesterday’s tip on section breaks, you may have come to a point where you felt that life would be so much easier if you could only see where all those sections begin and end. Am I right?
Should this be the case for you, here’s a little follow up information to help you out.
If you’re looking to “see” the breaks, you’ll need to choose to show the formatting marks.
This can be accomplished several different ways.
One way is to click the Show/Hide Paragraph button.
You could also try Ctrl + Shift + 8 (also labeled as Ctrl + * ).
And last but not least, you could use the Tools menu, Options choice.
On the View tab, find the Formatting section and select the All choice. Click OK.
Now, your document should visibly include all your section breaks, along with your paragraph breaks caused by the Enter key, the Tab keystrokes, spaces, etc.
To hide the formatting marks, you can click the button again, use Ctrl + Shift + 8 again or return to the Options window and uncheck the All choice.
To see or not to see. The choice is yours!
