I've a weird problem : i "see" the tags of MS-Word app instead of their values. This is the case for the table of content, page number etc.

Tags are like {PAGE} {NUMPAGES} {TOC \0 "1-3" \h \z \u}

Even in the "page view".

What have I done to deserve this (well know song) ?

I've thru all the settings of this app but I didn't find the right check-box to be checked or unchecked.
