Mouse Cursor changes to white square box from Paragraph symbol in document

Can someone explain what changes your mouse cursor to a different style when going through a document.  We have several word tables.  Throughout most of the document the cursor is a Paragraph symbol 4 vertical lines, but over a certain section it changes to a white square box.  Any ideas why or what it means?

Hmmm sounds like a text box or the table's gridlines are hidden and that's when it changes.  I'm not entirely sure but that's why we're here right.

So the square boxes have points at the end of each one.  It means that your document, although it may look like tables, are moste likely text boxes which were drawn in.

Double check that.  If that is the case and you really want it to look and work like a table, I'd remove the text boxes and paste the information into a new table.

Also, check your cursor settings.  Make sure it's set to the default.
