    Paragraph Icon Near Cursor - Word 2003

    Sometimes Word displays a little icon (for want of a better word) near the I-beam cursor when it is over a blank area on the page. The "icon" is composed of little horizontal lines showing the formatting of the paragraph that will be inserted by clicking -- left aligned, centered, etc.

    I know I can get rid of this icon, but I don't remember how, and I don't remember what it's called.

    Who can help me get rid of it?

    It's called Click and Type. You can disable it in Word 2003 via Tools > Options > Edit. Just click to uncheck the box for the feature, located toward the bottom of the Edit tab. For more information about Click and Type, see my blog post: http://compusavvy.wordpress.com/2010...-type-feature/

    Let us know.

    Thanks! I never use Click and Type, so I've disabled it many times before. I just couldn't remember what it's called. Nice blog and blog post, by the way.

    You're very welcome! Always glad to help if I can.

    And thank you for the compliment about my blog (and the specific post). Wish I could find more time to write new posts. It's tricky when I'm working a lot, and last year was very busy -- fortunately.
