Period being added before section titles when compiled to word

For some reason a period is being added before my section titles when I export to word (when I export to pdf I don’t have this issue). Does anyone know how to resolve this?


Could you send a screenshot, please? I’ve seen Word use a marker to indicate outline headings, but it’s just an indicator, not an actual period.

It might be a marker, I’m just not sure how to get rid of it. Thanks for the help!

Yeah, that’s Word’s “this text is special” marker.

I don’t know how to make it go away, either. It doesn’t print, so I just ignore it.
