Default Help get rid of weird default "lines" or "table" look in document that has no tables or lines

Quick little question ...

I was searching around for a way to work with a .doc (long legal dispute between a client and a competitor ... it was the only data we had to work with)



I struggled for a while. I've played with alot of the settings, and I don't know how I did it, but I end up with every single word document being treated as if they were part of a table and everything have a border ... not sure how to explain, but heres how it look :




I tried pretty much every options in the setting, and I cant set it back to look ... normal. ( there is no border or table in that, its just a plain empty .docx)

Those are text boundaries. You can toggle them on and off by navigating to File -> Options -> Advanced -> Show Text Boundaries. Scroll down on the Advanced tab, and you'll find the setting.
