Is there a way to print a document and show the symbols when enabled on the print job? To show symbols you go to view and click Show symbol. I know this can be done in Word, but not sure about WordPerfect. Using version X6. Thanks for any insight
The paragraph symbols ¶ and a few other format symbols are displayed representations of the actual WordPerfect format codes that you see in the Reveal Codes window.
You can print the current document to show these codes on the printout: File > Print > Advanced tab > "Print Reveal Codes"
The output will naturally be longer than a normal printout. Try it by printing a single page to see it it fits your needs.
Note: When you print codes in a document, the printed document does not contain any information other than the codes and the text. For example, graphics (shown in Reveal Codes as a [Box] code) and file information are not printed.
Thanks for the reply! I had found that print option, it prints the codes but not the symbols. This user was trying to print the doc with just the format symbols like M$ Word does. I told her that you probably can't print this way.
Thanks for the reply again!
For ¶ -
You can Find [HRt] and Replace with ¶[HRt].
That can easily be macroised.
The idea can be extended.
Thanks lemoto! And yes, this user is not a WP user at all. How easy would it be to add a space (dot between) words in that macro? What you came up with is excellent!

Add a line to searches using the style you see there.
- Each line except the last ends with a semicolon
- In your new line: before the central semicolon, a space between double quotes
- After the central semicolon, whatever character seems to you suitable, between double quotes.
