Editor Options (Display)

Always show these formatting marks on the screen

Tab characters    Select this option to display tab characters as arrows.

Spaces    Select this option to display spaces between words as dots.

Paragraph marks    Select this option to display the ends of paragraphs with the paragraph symbol.

Hidden text    Select this option to display a dotted line under text that is formatted as hidden.

Optional hyphens    Select this option to display hyphens that indicate where to divide a word at the end of a line. Optional hyphens are not printed unless a word actually breaks at the end of a line. When a word breaks at the end of the line, the optional hyphen is printed as a regular hyphen.

Object anchors    Select this option to display object anchors, which indicate that an object is attached to a specific paragraph.

Optional breaks    Select this option to control where a word or phrase breaks if it falls at the end of a line. If you use Outlook 2007 with an East Asian language, this option prevents the incorrect breaking of text.

 Note   This option is available only if an East Asian language is enabled for editing text.

Show all formatting marks    Select this option to display all the formatting characters that are listed in the Always show these formatting marks on the screen section, whether or not the check box associated with each one is selected. When you turn this option off, only the formatting characters that are indicated by the selected check boxes in the Always show these formatting marks on the screen section are displayed.

 Tip   You can quickly turn this option on or off by clicking Show/Hide ¶ in the Paragraph group of the Home tab.
