hello!

I use word
I copied and pasted from the internet pages some lines of of text.
After pasting into a word document it appears a symbols layout (°) type rods that are only displayed when active show/hide button.

What symbol is it?
how is it possible to search and replace it.

can I find a table with the name of the symbols layout and its name?

from the menu bar as you activate or deactivate the Show / Hide button?

thanks in advance

Hi,
After pasting into a word document it
appears a symbols layout (°) type rods
that are only displayed when active show/hide button.

press Ctrl + Shift + Space. The same symbol will be inserted? It's a
nonbreaking space, for example needed between $ and 500: $°500.
how is it possible to search and replace it.

Ctrl +H | More | Special...

Hi,
is it possible to have a list of symbols

you did not tell which version of Word is used. But nearly each version
offers a command like "Insert | Symbol".

I know that there is a menu in order to inser a symbol, but in this case this is a symbol in order to show a page layout only.

Sometimes I notice a symbol on my document and I would like to replace it, but I don't know the name of it

Ctr-Shift-Space types a "non-breaking space," and its "hidden characters"
symbol is a raised circle, a degree sign.

Its symbol in Find-Replace is ^s (but you don't need to know that, because
when you go to Find-Replace, Ctrl-h, and click "More," and then click
"Special" at the bottom, you can choose your special item by its name.
The symbol for it is then placed in the "Find" box (or the "Replace With"
box).

(You can probably find the list of those symbols somewhere in Word Help,
but finding something in Word Help is not easy.)

In languages that space before punctuation, such as French, Word
automatically inserts a non-breaking space before the punctuation.

"Insert | Symbol" will offer a tab with special (not printable) symbols like
"Em Dash", "En Dash", Nonbreaking Hyphen.
