    Menu or Keyboard for Nonprinting Characters (2003 SP1)

    I'm wondering where to find the "Show/Hide" nonprinting characters in the menu, or if there are any keyboard shortcuts to toggle them on and off. The only way I've used is the toolbar button.

    TIA

    I made some discoveries:

    It's part of the View menu, but not displayed by default. It can be added using Tools/Customize.
    The keyboard shortcut is ctrl+shift+*
    In Tools/Options, View tab, the nonprinting characters can be checked so they will display all of the time.

    Thanks!

    <P ID="edit" class=small>(Edited by tony55 on 13-Apr-05 20:11. )</P>The keyboard shortcut to toggle the display of non-printing characters is Ctrl+*

    By default the show/hide nonprinting characters option is not on the menu but you can add it.

    Select Tools>Customize...
    On the command tab click on "view" in the catagories section and "Show All" will be in the commands section (you may have to scroll down to it)
    You can then click and drag the option onto the menus at a location of your choosing.

    Added: See you found the answer just before I posted, at least we got the same answer. <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>
