Paragraphs, Tabs, & Spaces

  • Word automatically inserts paragraph marks as you type. These marks are always in documents, but they are invisible unless you display them.
  • To see formatting marks, use the Ribbon, at the top of the window. On the Home tab, in the Paragraph group, click the Show/Hide button . Click the button again to hide formatting marks.
  • You can get rid of extra spacing by deleting extra marks.
  • These marks do not print — they won't be on printed pages, even when you see them on the screen.
