Can anyone tell me how to turn off the annoying little bit of text that follows the cursor in the Word programme. It's the bit that tells you where your text is aligned - thanks.

This feature has been with us since Office 2000 and isn't just a bit of "annoying text" as it enables you to double-click anywhere on the page and start typing from that position. However, if you want to disable this feature along with the associated cursor then just go to Tools, Options, Edit tab, and remove the tick from "Enable click and type" at the bottom.

Eric, That feature is annoying to me - sorry that it offended you. Thanks for the reply.
