To apply a hidden text format to your selected text in MS Word, hold down the Ctrl and Shift keys and press the H key.
Applying this format will do different things depending on whether hidden characters are currently visible.
If hidden characters are currently visible, then you will see a dotted underline under the selected text - the text will only become hidden when you hide hidden characters (Ctrl Shift 8).
If hidden characters are not currently visible, then the selected text will disappear.
