I am preparing one of my first "from scratch" Word 2007 documents, most of the previous ones have been to reuse old Word 2003 documents and find that each new line in the document has a little black square at the start of it. I am not sure what this is, but I suspect it has something to do with the formatting. It only occurs when I start a new paragraph or bullet point, but it does not occur if the paragraph or bullet point carries over to a second or third line in the document. I would like to get rid of these, or at least hide them, or turn them off, somehow, but I would really also like to know what they are. Any insight that anyone can provide as to what they are and how to get rid of them or hide them is greatly appreciated. Thanks.
