How did it get there to begin with, you ask. Well I noticed that I have a macro that uses a MsgBox and when the message appears I use copy/paste to place it within cd. Once I no longer need the text I delete it. These paragraph "thingies" always remain. Tried refresh screen but no go. I rarely use that macro but just happened to notice this. Just thought I'd ask.
Tried saving the blank file. Still there when re-opened. Disappears when I create another paragraph box. Go figure.
Tabs are a part of the paragraph text style, so delete them and save style
