Formatting Marks?

Hi Folks,

I have taken on (maybe unwisely) the task of helping an inexperience
user to change his (rather large) manually formatted document into a
styles based one, but I have immediately discovered something I have not
seen before. I don't know the which software was used to create the
original document, but it is now in odt format.

When the formatting marks are toggled on the header and footer of the
document pages show a double-headed horizontal arrowhead which I am not
familiar with. The mark I am referring to can be seen in this capture:

Would someone please advise me as to what this mark represents?

Thanks & Regards
Dave

Re: Formatting Marks?

Hello,

The only thing I can think of is that this character is the "line break"
(created with Shift+Enter) as displayed by the font you are using. For
instance, in my version, the paragraph mark shows as a solid arrow right
when the text is in Wingding font. The easy test would be to try to insert a
line break immediately after and to see what gets displayed.

I hope this helps.
Rémy.

Thanks Rémy,

The font is Times New Roman, but you are correct inserting a line break
does produce this formatting mark.

I guess the character used to represent this break changed between
versions 6 and 7.

Best Regards
Dave
