Show/Hide formatting text in MS Word 2010

Was updating a MS Word 2010 document and coming from a WordPerfect background I like to see the formatting text when I'm editing. A quick search found this: http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/office/forum/office_2010-word/view-hidden-text/0db765e8-0f42-476e-88dc-267eccdbf45b That pointed me in the right direction.

You click on the File tab then click Options.  On the Word Options dialog click on the Display option on the left menu bar.  Then check the "Show all formatting marks" checkbox. Like this:


Or if you only want to see specific formatting marks you can pick and choose between "Tab characters", "Spaces", "Paragraph marks", "Hidden text", "Optional hyphens", and "Object anchors".
