URGENT Strange formatting on word, please help! RRS feed

  • Question

  • Please can someone explain why the formatting of my references have changed? All my in-text references have large blue brackets and I can't remove them?

    Please help! My "bibliography" section has a label beside it saying "bibliographies" before the heading. I am unable to upload a photo until my account has been verified.

    Thank you,

    Michaela

  • Go to the Controls panel on the Ribbon's Developer Tab and click on 'Design Mode' to deactivate it.

  • As macropod stated, you are in "Design Mode." Here are instructions about the Developer Tab.

    Apparently, some sort of switching to Design Mode is being caused by a recent update and is catching a lot of Word users who didn't know Design Mode existed. Microsoft is investigating the problem according to recent posts.
