Default Wierd symbols inplace of "space", "indentation" etc

Some 1 help me..



I pressed the "Mark up" button in the "References" tab upon a random selection. After that something weird happened. All my "word" documents have weird symbols representing space (.); \n (|P); indentation etc. I have attached a image showing the same. The documents have no such symbols when viewed in full screen or when saved as PDF.

I have reinstalled office in an attempt to rectify the problem but nothing seems to help.


PLEASE HELP ME!

Go to Tools -> Options -> View, un-check Paragraph Marks.

BTW, you need to use Manage Attachments to upload images in your computer, you have done it correctly in your first post. Manage Attachments is not available in quick reply mode, click the Go Advanced button.
