Microsoft Word and Reveal Codes

Introduction
People who are transitioning from WordPerfect to Word frequently ask how to reveal codes in Word. The reveal codes feature is unique to WordPerfect, and, unfortunately, Word doesn’t have an equivalent.

However, Word does have a Reveal Formatting feature that allows you to see how selected text is formatted. Users also have the option of having Word display formatting marks in the document.

These features can prove quite helpful when you’re working on your document. You’ll be able to tell at a glance what formatting has been applied to selected portions of your document, and the formatting marks will make the hidden elements of your document visible.
