paragraph (in normal view it showed only one paragraph in the margin, but the
text itself had this paragraph mark and the text continued on the next line)
however, when i click on the paragraph name in the margin, it selects all
text (even the bit after the paragraph mark). i've never seen that before,
can anyone help me? thanks

If you turn off hidden characters, is it still there?

Hi cris,

If it's in the middle of a line (or can be moved away from the end of the line), it's just a standard pilcrow symbol (ie Â¶). You can
create these via Insert|Symbol.

If it's at the end of a line and acts as a line break, it's an ASCII 13 character and may be the result of copying & pasting
material from another application. You can change these to 'proper' paragraph breaks via Find/Replace:
Find = ^13
Replace = ^p
