    I installed word 2008 on my girlfriends mac for college use and she managed to turn the pilcrow (little paragraph symbols) on. I know on windows there is a simple button you can click to turn this on and off, but I cannot for the life of me find it on the mac version of ms word. if anyone can point me in the right direction.. well I would thank you! :rolleyes:

    Preferences -> View -> Non-printing Characters -> uncheck "paragraph marks"

    btw, you can add any function you like to the toolbars by going to customize toolbars

    You can also do...

    Thanks for the help on the pilcrow issue. I also did it again and notice how I turned it on the first time (and thank God now off).
    The easy dual button Push is;
    Hold down the "Apple Key" the same time you hit the */8 Key.
    You can turn this annoying system off or on with ease.
