Cursor in Word changed to the size of a single dot. How to repair?

Without obvious reason my cursor in Word changed to the size of a dot.

I checked the following (which gave solutions in the past)

- go to normal view and return to print view
- the option "hide spelling errors in this document" is unchecked

Has anyone a suggestion to repair this?

Hello LuckyLuke57,

adding to the list above
- switch to 500% Zoom and back
- pressing Ctrl and a single mouse wheel click in either direction

hope this helps a bit

You could force a reset by going to the Visual Basic editor (Alt + F11) .  In the Immediate Window (Click on View - Immediate window if you can't see it) and enter the following

System.Cursor = wdCursorNormal

Press Enter

Hopefully this will clear it for you
