When you say dots, are you referring to crazy looking characters within the document/dots/markings etc?

To get started, I need to know what type of computer you are using, a Windows XP, Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows 10?

And is it Word 2007 you were referring to or is it another version of word?

The line of small solid squares is still showing.
Microsoft Office Technician: Isaac Franklin, Support Technician replied 3 months ago

Did you close word, reboot your pc, check other documents after you followed those steps?

Try that for me first.

Microsoft Office Technician: Isaac Franklin, Support Technician replied 3 months ago

keyboard shortcut for showing, and hiding the symbols is Ctrl + Shift + 8.

Can you do this and tell me if it is 'hidden' still? Then reload document.

the row looks like a row of square bullets you would insert from the bullet library.
