how to change cursor appearance in word from dot to line

While I was typing a document I must have inadvertently changed the
appearance of my blinking cursor in Word. Rather than a blinking line, it now
appears as a blinking dot which is often very difficult to see when placed
within large amounts of text. I have tried search to locate a solution to
change it back but have been unsuccessful. I searched using the terms:
cursor, appearance, change and other variations. The cursor is ok as I type
this - it is only in my Word documents.

I used the 500% zoom trick (see the 2006 thread on this topic) and it worked.
One of those mysteries of life!!

They usually say change your Zoom to 500% then back to 100%.

I've never had this problem, but it gets asked about a whole lot!
