    It looks like a Text or a Rich Text Content Control, You can find them in the Controls group on the developer tab.

    Here is a link to a Microsoft article:

    If you're talking about the backward looking P thingy, that's an end of paragraph symbol. the ASSCI code is 244. It tells the computer when a paragraph ends.

    I forgot to mention, in Word, on the Home tab under Paragraphs, is a toggle that lets you turn the symbol on and off!
