    underscore floating line (97 SR 2)

    A co-worker has Word 97 SR-2 - says "all of a sudden" his screen not only shows the paragraph mark character, but an underscore line that moves with the paragraph mark. What's up with that and how can we stop it?

    Re: underscore floating line (97 SR 2)

    If it's just one paragraph mark: perhaps the paragraph mark was inserted while revision tracking was on? (Tools | Track Changes | Highlight Changes...)
    If it affects all paragraph marks: does it persist after restarting Word, or if that doesn't help, the PC? If so, try Phil Rabichow's <!post=Systematic Approach to Behavioral Problems in Word (97/2000),197827>Systematic Approach to Behavioral Problems in Word (97/2000)<!/post> on his PC.

    Thanks Hans - but he just informed me he somehow changed the view to Normal and the floating underscore he described was the line that appears under the paragraph mark in Normal view.

    Sorry for wasting your time - I told him he was an idiot and never to bother me again. Not really - but he got the hint!
