I recently opened a Microsoft Word document (Microsoft Office X) in LibreOffice on my new iMac (system OS X 10.8.4). Though it looks fine in Word, in LibreOffice (v., there is a hyphen within a small gray block between almost every syllable through the document. Can anyone tell me how/why these hyphens appear, and how to easily remove without having to manually delete each one?

Are these optional hyphens? If so, they won't print, so you don't really need to remove them. You can see that in Page Preview.

You can suppress their display in either of two ways:
o Untick View| Field Shadings.
o Untick Tools | Options... | LibreOffice Writer | Formatting Aids | Display of | Custom hyphens. (On the Mac, that's LibreOffice | Preferences | LibreOffice Writer | Formatting Aids | Display of | Custom hyphens.)

I trust this helps.
