Microsoft Word has gone mad! Help!

    When I open a new document and start typing, it leaves dots and symbols between words when I press the space bar. It also leaves weird signs everytime I start a new line!

    What the hell is going on?

    Can anybody help please!


    cant remeber whats its called but a little p at teh top menu should correct it, it shows you spacing etc.

    You've, or someone has clicked on reveal codes
    Look on your toolbar for summat that looks like a P backwards.
    Press it, and the codes won't be revealed anymore
    It's a useful tool to aid formatting

    Cheers for your help.

    I cant see the bloody thing anywhere! :thinking:

    Can you see a double >> on the toolbar anywhere?
    If so, click it, and it will show more toolbar options you cannot see.....the P should be revealed
    Click on View: Toolbars: Formatting and the P will either appear, or at least the >> will appear
