Showing Word Processing Invisibles

Pages, Word and some other apps allow you to see what would otherwise be invisible characters like spaces, tabs and paragraph breaks. You can use these visual symbols to edit your documents with more precision.

    Thanks! Didn’t know what “invisibles” meant before, and it’s so useful.

    That is also useful for editing. When I was teaching English Comp and trying to break students of the habit of putting 2 spaces after periods and other end punctuation marks, it was a help (also FIND and REPLACE with , for example). And it is a huge help in figuring out what is wrong with formatting!

    Excellent little clip keeping me well informed about the uses of some of the unfamiliar items in pages. Your videos are so helpful. Please keep publishing them on the “how to’s” in pages.
