Hi, I'm Robert and I'll be helping you with your computer question.

That sounds like you just switched to the wrong view. there is a set of little icons on one of the sides of the page or bottom ( it varies some by version or layout ) that you can click on to get different views. One of them shows every control code to make it easier to debug a page that isn't formatting the way that you want it to. But of course they really garble up the screen if it is on that mode constantly
If you tell me which version you are using I can get you mor exact instruction to switch the mode. But there will be 3 little icons that look like pages. clicking on one or another of them will put it back in the view that you want.
As for the indents you probably got caught in something else that changed the indents for that section. If you highlight the entire section that has them messed up you can put a new tab stop in the ruler above where you want it. Or you might be able to find the little control right before the section where it screws up and delete it.
If you can send me the document and tell me what page number it is on I can fix it for you
Below is where the view mode is on version 2013 but it might be somewhere else on a side of the page in a different version
I am not sure if you received my original answer as it keeps popping up asking me to reply.
Yes, thanks, XXXXX XXXXX maybe 25y minutes ago sending you a snatch of text. I think you must have that by now. Let me reports that meantime the lines have entered a new phase. Suddenly I can which I definitely could not do even half an hour ago. However deleting a hundred pages of them is also damn nuisance. I'm hoping that there is some way that a magic command can get them back to where they were before the computer took over. I have also reconfirmed that the indent settings are all on zero. Cheers!
Usually if you highlight them all you can then change the indent settings on them all at once. if they are stuck in something like an auto indent or bulleting type format than trying to change one of them wont work
I did not get anything from you.
You can upload it at www.wikisend.com and copy and paste the download url in this post
or you can email it to [email protected] and reference this question http://www.justanswer.com/microsoft-office/7yl8q-hi-microsoft-two-things-bugging-days.html and ask them to forward it to me.
please send enough of it so that I can see what is wrong as far as the document around it goes and send it in an ms word format
Robert,Sorry, can't continue now, an interruption happens. Thanks for trying and good wishes to you
Robert, hi, sorry to have vanished like that. State of play is that both those problems persist. I didn't give you a proper chance to fix them because things are too hectic this side. Both problems for some reason exist in one portion only of a book that I'm doing (which was in deadline week when I spoke to you and is now three days overdue). The fact that they are hanging there is going to be the publisher’s problem. My problem is getting the content finished. I think I've paid you a deposit or a holding fee or something like that. Won’t you let that simmer there in your good care for a while and I'll come back to you as soon as I have breathing space and we’ll figure out how to get that weird stuff out of all parts of my computer.Thanks, hey. (I think you were doing fine, just that I ran out of waiting time). Denis
