[Solved] Shift and spacing markers showing up in the text

Postby TomHoo » Thu Mar 26, 2020 3:36 pm

The text is showing every space bar and shift button action as a . dot or a P-marker (paragraph). All throughout the text. They appeared some fifteen minutes after I began a writing session. These should be invisible. How do I make them invisible again?

Press the backwards P button or toggle /View /Non printing characters. Most people writing long documents or doing careful formatting will choose to leave these display - they are non printing.
