Invisible Dots

When using Microsoft Word, I like to reveal the invisibles, you know, see the behind-the-scenes formatting on the page. I recently discovered some mysterious items that I cannot figure out.

When  working on a table, I found these invisible dots in the table cells.

Do you have any idea what they are for? They are not placeholders for text, as they are still there even when text is entered into the cell.

I FOUND A MICROSOFT WORD BUG!

There are only a bajillion software developers and editors who work for Microsoft and all of them missed this!

 

Look closer:

 

Yes, it does read:

“Change the wy text wraps around the selected object”

 

This bug appears in MS Word for Mac 2011 documents, when saving files in compatibillity mode (i.e., .doc file types, not .docx).

 

You’re welcome.
