Please help......

Hi Elena,
You did not specify which application(s) or software version(s) you're working with, so I'm guessing that you're working in MS Word.

In Word, go to Tools - Options - View tab, tick Hidden Text.

This will show your source text.

Another option in MS Word Mar 24, 2009

Assuming you are using Word, I am sure you have the "show/hide" icon disabled. It's the one that lets you look at spaces and paragraphs. If you disable it, you will not be able to look at the source language. Hope I explained myself! But I can assure you I've been there before, so I am absolutely positive this works.
