Length Requirements and Print Preview

I’m sure most of you reading this have, at one point in your life, had to write a paper for a class. Sometimes these papers had a minimum page length – 10 pages single spaced Times New Roman font 10 – to be exact.

I recall continuously checking my page length using the print preview button. I loved checking how much more the last paragraph added to my total page length.

Mystery Character

Random discovery in Microsoft Word today. I was selecting some text and at the point of having all the text selected, the black selection background mysteriously grew to include an extra character at the end of the line. Initially I thought it was just a space, but there are no characters (spaces included) at the end of my sentence.

Thanks to Richard for solving the mystery. See his explanation in the comments section.
