Hi, sometimes even if you activate the paragraph marker it is hard to locate section breaks in word documents,specially when the section break located near to the end of a line. Best way to locate and delete them is using find and replace them. You can find a very good tutorial on how to delete section breaks by find and replace here

The easiest way to make them visible is to switch to draft display. If you want to delete some, you can use Find/Replace, where Find = ^b. Do be aware, though, that deleting them without sufficient care can compromise the preceding Section's page setup.
