How to Hide/Show Nonprinting Characters in Word 2011 for Mac

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:

  1. Go to main menu and click on Word.
  2. Click on Preferences to open the preferences window.
  3. Double click on View under Authoring and Proofing Tools.
  4. Under Nonprinting characters part, uncheck all check boxes.
  5. 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.
