In Word 2011 for Mac it could be difficult to find the symbol “¶” that can show/hide nonprinting characters in your documents, like in other version of Word.
In this version of Word for Mac (2011), you need to do it this way:
- Go to main menu and click on Word.
- Click on Preferences to open the preferences window.
- Double click on View under Authoring and Proofing Tools.
- Under Nonprinting characters part, uncheck all check boxes.
- Click OK button.
It took sometime for me to find this when the first time I try to turn off the nonprinting characters in Word 2011 for Mac. Hope this small piece writing will save your time to do it.
