The paragraph mark (show/hide) feature doesn't turn off in Word 2003.

Are there other settings I should change to rectify this?

Do you mean:

Tools / Options / View / Formatting Marks / uncheck 'paragraph marks'.

Show / Hide should then work correctly.

Feedback appreciated, thought we might be looking at Help, 'Detect and Repair'.

Office 2003 appears to be very stable.

Had a lot of problems with the Office 2007 Trial, will be avoiding upgrade!

I agree about 2003 vs 2007. I use '07 at work & am often faced with bugs that the help-desk has to sort out. (Especially Outlook!)

Hi HB

I still have a copy of Office Professional with Frontpage (Word 2002, etc.).
That also worked superbly.

Can't stand Outlook. Every time there is an update for Outlook 2003, I find that the installation has changed
the default mail program to Outlook, whereas I use Outlook Express. You'd think it would be courteous enough
to ask first, but no, MS does it's own thing.

Out of curiosity, is your display name based on Pulp Fiction, by any chance?

Good luck with Office 2007; if you ever post any problems, (which your IT guys can't solve), there will
be silence from this end.

Best wishes from the cold, bleak, bankrupt, (morally, politically and financially) UK.

Pete.

Well Pete, all I can say is I praise my help-desk at work every day. Outlook '07 (calendar/invites) seem to give many of us grief, but someone always manages to pull us out of the rough.

As for my display name: I chose it randomly -- but Pulp Fiction is one of my fave movies of all time. Btw -- one of my colleagues works out of our London UK office and he's been complaining about the "bleeping" wet weather there :thumbsup: Hope things dry out for you soon!

Sending Cheery weather your way :flowers:

Thanks, hunnybunny, (love that name); the weather hasn' t improved, but nice try.

Apologies for my nosiness; thought afterwards one shouldn't get personal in these forums;
relieved to receive a friendly reply.

QT is a great Director and picked a superb cast for PF, (including himself).

And a Merry Christmas to you! :thumbsup:

Pete
