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:  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".
