Word 2010 is displaying dots instead of spaces

December 2016




Issue


when I press the spacebar, a dot is being displayed Microsoft word 2010. How can I fix this problem?

Solution


Word is only showing spaces as dots. You can turn this off :

- Click on Tools menu > Options > View tab.
- Under Formatting marks, uncheck "Spaces".
- (If "Spaces" is clear and "All checkbox" is selected, de-select it to clear the "All check box")
- Click on OK.

Thanks to Jeff for this tip.
