I was translating a text in MS Word document when I hit a wrong button by accident. All of a sudden the hidden source text popped up and I can't hide it!
"Show non-printable characters" button only adds/hides space and indent marks.

Moreover, it also shows this way texts translated with Trados on other machines.

Please, advise what should be done to get the Workbench back to normal. Thank you in advance!

I have my word in Spanish, so it may be that the "words" I give are not totally exact, but I hope you will find it.

Go to:
Then, you clic on "View", and you unselect: "hidden text" and "all"

Then, you accept.

I hope that's it.

Godd luck.
