I installed the app, used it once. The next time I tried to use it, there was no function to use it, only option was "help" which was no help at all. It shows the app as installed. Really frustrated with it. The show option in word documents was so easy and helpful. Google docs, not so much. Very disappointing. I would rate it a minus star if that was available.

I found the solution: Open any document. Go to "Add-ons" menu, click on "Manage add-ons". Once you have the dialog box with the list of installed add-ons, look for this add-on (the displayed name is "Show"), then click on the vertical options icon (at the right of the "Installed" label in the upper-right) and choose "Use in this document". This is a life-saver but should be fixed as quick as possible, since it is a usability issue having to remember to do this per document. Hope this helps everyone!

It's just a waste of time to try and use it.

I read all the instructions, I have turned on the app on the specific doc I'm editing. and it just doesn't do anything, even though the menu item is checked. Really disappointing app. I hope someone comes out with one that works.

The show all button doesn't work properly, but I can live with pushing every button individually that I wish to use. I understand every part of it and it is fine. Also I have Microsoft Word at the moment and Microsoft word includes the show option. I just use Docs if I'm doing a quick manuscript, since Word takes a while to load and process, but when doing long essays I use Microsoft Word.

Doesn't work consistently. Constantly having to reinstall if I want to use it in a new document. Very frustrating.

I experience the same issues with consistency. I have no idea why the installation disappears over time. I wish I could do a complete conversion from MS Word to Google's word processor but it is too "clunky" and impairs productivity.

Hello, I have selected the "use in this document" feature of the add-on; however I am still having difficulties with the app. The non-printable characters do not update as I make changes to the document. This is frustrating while editing, that I have to continuously go back into the "add-on" menu and reset the document. Any advise is appreciated.

A lot of ppl seem to be skipping this step after installing: Add-ons > Manage Add-ons > Use in this document. That allows the Add-on to function properly.

Shows carriage returns. Doesn't show spaces unless you click into the add-on's option menu and select 'show > show > spaces'. Note that selecting 'show > show all' doesn't show spaces. There is no option to show column breaks which is what I was hoping to see. It also doesn't show any formatting marks in real time. To see anything new you have to continuously go into the add-on's option menu and select 'show all'. I'm not sure if it used to work better or not but it certainly doesn't seem very useful in its current state.

Like many other users, it worked once beautifully and then ceased to have the option of showing marks, only showing "help" in the menu. Too bad.
