How do I show the formatting in a document on Google Docs? In plain Microsoft Word, the user can click on the paragraph icon in the toolbar and all the formatting will be displayed on the page (paragraph marks, tabs will be shown, spaces are marked with a dot, etc.) How does one go about showing this formatting information in a Google Docs document?  (Otherwise, without being able to see this information, how does the user know if there are one or two spaces in between sentences, or one or two tabs at the start of a paragraph? Or a Hard Return vs. a Soft Return at the end of a line?
