Paragraph formatting icons (markups) showing up in emails

A user has Paragraph formatting icons (markups) showing up in emails.

I can't locate the markup icon in the Standard Toolbar to turn it off.

Any ideas?

Looks like you are using Word as your email editor.  You would have to go to Word to change it.  From the menu:
Tools|Options.  On the View tab, go to Formatting Marks, and uncheck the stuff you don't want.

(I like leaving mine on, but YMMV)

Do you mean this: ¶.
That is the symbol for the paragraph mark. It also appears on the (Show.Hide) button on Word's standard toolbar which controls the visibility of the formatting marks.

Hello BryceRichert,

1. If the above does not work, If that setting is unchecked already, you may be viewing all non-printable characters. If you see a dot everywhere there's a space, such as between words, this is likely to be the problem. SHIFT+CTRL+* will turn that on and off, including paragraph marks.

2. You can turn off Word as editor and use Outlook editor.

Hope this helps!

Yes, I mean that. However, I can't get that "show-hide" button to show up.

When I turn off "Use MS Wrod 2003 to edit e-mail messages", her default  Signature turns yellow with all the paragraph marks  and carriage return characters showing.

Here is what her initial email looks like after she hits "new email" when the "use MS Word 2003 to edit e-mail messages" is turned off. The signature turns from normal black

The show-hide markup button is not activated in Word 2003. I do not see the show-hide markup button anywhere in Outlook and I cannot get it to show up in Outlook under the Standard Toolbar. Maybe it's not there in Outlook?

You need to turn MS Word as editor back on, as the Signature is depended on Word.

You may be viewing all non-printable characters. If you see a dot everywhere there's a space, such as between words, this is likely to be the problem. SHIFT+CTRL+* will turn that on and off, including paragraph marks.

They still look like Word symbols.The other is for Newline.

Perhaps the user could try switching to Word and then turning the 'Show formatting off'

Open a new message, go to View, then Toolbars, Click to show the standard toolbar.  Select the paragraph symbol.
