Un-hide hidden text?

ForensMath used Ask the Experts™
Unlike my older versions, in WordPerfect X5 I cannot find a way to unhide text once I have hidden it. The documentation seems to say that you Reveal-Codes then double-click on the "hidden" code. Up pops the Font dialogue. But the "Hidden" appearance choice is greyed out (and unchecked) so my hidden text seems un-exposable.

Can anyone see what I'm doing wrong?

If you are in a table and the text has overflowed, the text is hidden.  You therefore would not be able to see it.  

For your solution, first select menus View > Hidden Text.  Then do your reveal codes method.
