HI. I'm asking this question for an 80 year old friend whose knowledge
of wp and macs is very, very limited.
He did something recently that causes the formatting codes to be
revealed when ever he types or edits a wp document. How does he
shutoff those codes permanently? (he never uses them and doesn't know
what they mean anyway.) He doesn't know what version wp he has or what

delete the table or formating. Also, if you have a text border, then copy and
paste in the middle you can get weird things where the rest of the document
has a text border.So you need to go into the codes to find the start of the text

- I've only done a brief check, but if you turn on Reveal Codes in one file, that does not affect all others. That only happens if you change your Preferences. However, I have set up a customised keyboard, so it may be that my key combination is file specific.

WP/Mac, unless he is using a custom keyboard mapping, which sounds
unlikely). He can get rid of the codes with the same key
combination, which toggles Reveal Codes on and off, or can go via the

codes -- quickly, even - in the rare case of it happening again?
