    Thanks Ken and Brinks its a deal by MS that if I pay for more room for One Drive I can use online access to use word' which means to me that my paid for version is no-loner?
    I tried every solution offered nothing has worked period, it looks like back to Google Docs for me. Thanks again to all of you you do a great job for people like me. Kindest regards Dasha

    Dasha, how customized is your overall system?

    Do you have a lot of third party apps that are customized?


    I know this is not a fix and I know how most react when Clean install is mentioned. That said in a number of situation it is the fastest way to get back to a solid working foundation.

    Hi Ken Yes Mate I have way too much Junk and heaps of errors and issues, I was setting up for a clean install, and I will get back to doing just that ASAP.
    I really thought having MS Office15 and MS Office16 may have been a clue, but if you think the C Inst, is a good chance then that's what I will do my OS is a mess. Re your last in Sept' I had installed AOMEI Backup and run it also an ISO of the Op system, its still on a FAT32 USB here I have another Word program i can endure until after Christmas, Do you think I should close this thread and start again Regards Dasha

    No I wouldn't close it until it is solved.

    I would not have two Offices installed, I've had a issue in the past. Office 2013 and Office 2010, Outlook would occasionally not send mail. Recently I installed Office 365 on a system with Office 2013 and no issues. Which indicates what Windows problem resolution always boils down to --- it depends.


    I mentioned the clean install as it does cure countless unexplained / unfixable items. I know its a lot of work.


    If you do a clean install I would create an Image with your tool of the clean system with all apps installed. Then keep this image and use it in the place of a clean. This allows you to do the equivalent of a clean in about an hour.

    What you show in your image is called the paragraph mark....

    and it can be turned off by a simple click of the paragraph button under the Home tab, under the Paragraph section...

    Think Dasha issue is text box not the symbol. No matter what a text box appears.

    Hi KenI have tried to uninstall and reinstall MS Word etc and it made no difference"
    I find it extremely odd that you say you uninstalled and reinstalled Word yet the issue remains. Are you sure you completely uninstalled the entire Office suite or do you just have Word? If you have the entire suite that's what you need to uninstall, not just Word.

    Anyway my suggestion would be to completely uninstall all instances of Office (that includes both instances of Office you say you have) then reinstall Office 2016 and see what happens. If the issue persists then you might consider a clean install of Windows followed by a clean install of Office.

    My two cents.
