Hiding Text

If you have confidential information in a document or text that you don’t want others to see, you can hide the text. When you hide text, you can’t view or print the text unless you select the Hidden Text option in the Options dialog box. When you display or print hidden text, the characters appear with a dotted lined underneath. Hiding text does not protect your text from being seen, but it does conceal it from others.
