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 impossibleicon_wink.gif

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 inputicon_wink.gif


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 fineicon_wink.gif 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.
