I no sooner solved my problems with page breaks (thanks geezer) than I went from the frying pan into the fire. I clicked something I should
not have. My entire document went down several font sizes and is pushed over to the left side of the page. Not only that but every single
paragraph in the document has a grey circle to the left of it (no, I have NOT been smoking anything). They look like bullet points but they're
grey instead of black.

Fortunately, I had another copy of the original document saved. I'm going to have to trash the first one and start all over again with my
page breaks. I also made myself three more copies. One misclick in Word and you're DEAD.

Doesn't 'undo' work?

String, that was the first thing I tried. It seems like undo never works when you really need it.
