I have very complicated mergefields in Word 2010, thus I would like to print out what I coded already to analyze it.

However, I cannot copy and paste the pure code, because it always converts to output. I neither found any option to print out the mergefields - NOT the result, but the original fields.

Example of code that I want to print or copy: { IF { MERGESEQ } = 1 "x" "y"}

How to do so?

I suppose this option will make the difference:

Go to File > Options and scroll down:

Field codes

With checkbox active, I get field codes "printed" to PDF output.

For Word 2010

Go to FILE > Options > Advanced
scroll down to the header title "Print" Click or check the box that reads "Print fields codes instead of their values"

Hope this helps.

Go to Tools > Options and click the Print tab. Under "Include with print" select Field codes. For more info see here:

There is no Tools > Options in Word 2010, and basically you repeated what the other answer already mentioned hours ago, but yours is for an older version of Word. – Karan Feb 17 '13 at 23:02
