I need help (thousands of purple q symbols appear)

q letters in purple appear after each line, I don’t know where they come from


These are pilchrows. They indicate paragraph breaks.

Probably you turned “Show Invisibles” on at some point.

Don’t worry, they won’t show in the output document.


How can I make them disappear? They’re very distracting.
Thanks in advance.

Go to Search Menus (under Help) and type invisible. You will then see the path to View > Text Editing >Show Invisibles.

Thank you very much

I used the shortcut Ctrl + Shift + \ to turn it off.

I accidentally used the command when I tried to Paste with Ctrl + Shift + V
