Go to the View menu > Structure and look for something like “hide tags” (I have a French version)

Analize your Word document again, I guess you must remove this elements from your original Word document...

Im having having a nightmare with indesign. Been using it for 10 years yet this 150p document im producing is giving me problems. Style sheets not working properly. Selected text and hitting the para style inserts a random font and leading goes weird...not as its set to in para style. Ive re-installed but overall indesign is not behaving. Having to copy and paste into indesign and reformat manually as nothing is working right.

Here are some things to check:

  • Is there a character style applied in addition to the paragraph style?
  • Have you removed the overrides?

 

Click the [+] sign in the styles panel to highlight the overrides, then show a screen shot with

  • text selected
  • Paragraph styles panel
  • Character styles panel

Can you send a sample of indd file with this hidden symbols through some Dropbox/yadisk services? Then may be some of forum users can check you file and find what the thing is these brackets. 

Remember, never say you can't do something in InDesign, it's always just a question of finding the right workaround to get the job done. © David Blatner

Do the blue brackets look like these in the Adobe Help page? They don't print.

They will not print nor be visible in PDF, don't worry 😉 They are just indicators for notes.

Hi pipriley,

 

WARNING!

Do NOT REMOVE the blue brackets on the imported endnotes texts.

They are necessesary to identify the text for a given endnote marker in your main text.

If you remove the special characters you will remove the endnote marker in your main text.

 

Regards,
Uwe Laubender
