Sometimes, after an update, or downloading a new template, you may see some special characters displayed, especially on the cover page.  Example below:

This is a global setting in Microsoft Word and can be easily changed.  

  • Select File > Options

  • Click "Advanced" on the left menu to open the advanced options

  • Scroll down to the "Show Document Content" section 

  • Uncheck "Show field codes instead of their values" 

  • Click "OK" button to save changes. When the options window closes, your document should no longer be displaying these special characters.
