I have found that, if I first make 3 blank lines, then go back and put the 3 asterisks on the middle line, Word doesn't do this. It shows the 3 asterisks as it should.

Hi, Pamela!

What you have is when you type three asterisks and hit enter. You can undo it immediately with CTRL Z, but otherwise you need to copy and paste the page in to a plain text notepad file and then copy above it and paste into the original document and then the bottom, with a blank line between and return to type the three asterisks.

I would love to find a simpler way and am more than open to suggestions if others have better workarounds.

    can't delete it the normal ways and I have all formatting marks
    turned on.

    Has anybody encountered this before??

    This is what it looks like:

    We'll be waiting a long time for that perfect husband, and we'll
    be awfully disappointed during the waiting.

    Here’s the difference:


    You wish for a relationship

    you dream of a husband

    you long for a perfect man.


    You wish for some cash

    you dream of more money

    you long for enough money to take away all your problems

    Thanks for any help,
