Hi all

I've reinstalled Windows and Office recently and I have noticed that in all my DOCX's, I can hide all marks, like spaces and hard returns for instance with ctrl+, but the tab arrow remains visible.

Does anyone know how to get rid of this?

Tks in advance
Elisabeth

Hi Elisabeth,

Select File - Options - Display then set your preferences in "Always show these formatting marks on the screen" (in Word 2010, I'm not sure about later versions).

Regards,
Darius

Hi Darius

I forgot to say the most important... I have Word 7, there is no "File"...

I've been looking on the Internet and I finally found how to do this. I wanted to delete the subject, but impossible

Just in case someone asks the same question one day :
Office button, Options Word, Display, untick the checkbox Tabs

Tks!
Elisabeth

Avoid tabs when you can Jan 30, 2016

You can eliminate a lot of tabs by using 'indent' or a 'hanging indent' whenever possible. That doesn't solve your problem completely, I know, but it will reduce them to a minimum. And, of course, you could upgrade your Word program to a newer version...

Thank you all... Jan 30, 2016

For your valuable input


As I said, I found the answer for my Windows 7 version.

Tina, I don't upgrade whenever I just have a small problem. I've never seen the interest in purchasing new versions when they arrive on the market, especially when an older version works just fine Especially when you look at the price of the Office versions!

Re: upgrades Feb 1, 2016

No, I agree that you wouldn't upgrade just to solve one small problem but there may be a lot of other things the newer version can do, or can do better, that you are not even aware of.
