1)   Click the Office Assistant button from toolbar.

2)   Click the Show All button from toolbar will show you all the hidden characters.

Hope this help you.

I know how to make the Office Assistant show up on my screen, but it won't stay where I put it. I'd like to keep it at the top of the screen, but it keeps migrating to the text area. Can I do something to make it appear at the top of the screen when I open Word...and stay there.

As far as I know you can't do that. (I could be wrong.)

Try this :

1)    Minimise the size of Office Assistant.
2)    Move it to the top right corner and do not attempt to move the location to others.

The Office Assistant will stays at the last location when you open Word next time.

May be this is not the perfect solution, but give a try.

I don't know how to minimize the assistant. When I move it to the uppper right hand corner, it doesn't stay there; it will sometimes move into the text area even wh8ile I'm working on the document.

After you turn on the OA, click the Option, and clear the Move When in the Way check box.

Hope that helps.
