Trying to help a friend recover text from a large Word file (not backed up - but will be in the future if we fix the problem). It is a book of some 300+ pages. File manager shows a file size of 6+MB. When I open the file, there is no text to be seen. However, all the page numbers show up at the bottom of each page. As I scroll through the document, I can see some place holders and a couple of graphics - just no text. I can place the cursor on one of the pages and when I mouse over the "Headings" options, a paragraph of text will appear where the cursor is located. As soon as I mouse off the "Headings" options, the text goes away. I can move the cursor to different pages with the same result. The text is obviously there but there is some switch or setting that has made it "hidden". Found some references to "Hiding and Unhiding" text in Word. One was to check the "Hidden" box in the Font properties. I looked at that and the box was not checked. Any ideas?
