OK, I'm writing a scientific report in Word. I have automatic figure numbering active which is being used in a table of figures at the start of the document.
Each figure has a label (automatically generated) and a short title, followed by a more lengthy description. I don't want the descriptions to end up in the table, so I've added a paragraph break between the title and description. I don't actually want a line break at this point, so I have hidden the paragraph mark via the fonts menu.
This means that a paragraph break appears when I have my formatting marks active, but is invisible when they are turned off (or when the document is printed). I would rather keep the formatting marks on (it makes the document much easier to edit) but not keep adding the extra line which would be invisible in the finished document - because it messes with the page numbering.
Is there any way of showing the formatting marks, without adding a line break at these hidden paragraphs?
Alternatively, is there a way of breaking a paragraph without also adding a line break?
