file with hidden text
to display Hidden text
Displays text that uses the character format "hidden", when View - Formatting Marks is enabled.
0: Open hiddef.odt, enable Formatting Marks (^f10; end-of-para should be displayed); put cursor between B and C;
1: hit Right key, cursor moves past C;
2: hit Right key again, cursor does not move visibly;
3: hit Right key again, cursor moves past G.
Explanation: there is a hidden string 'def' between C and G but it is not displayed as it should. To check this, replace step 2: hit Shift-Right key to select (invisibly) the hidden string , then unhide it: ~o, h, Enter; in Character; choose FontEffects, click Hidden: string 'def' appears —because it's not hidden any longer.
this works for me:
- Menu Tools.../Options/LibreOffice Writer/Formatting Aids
[X] Hidden characters
- enable Menu View "Formatting Marks"

Could you please check what Oliver suggested ?
what Oliver suggested is good, but my reply somehow went astray.
I suggested that the help be improved by adding the condition
Menu Tools.../Options/LibreOffice Writer/Formatting Aids
[X] Hidden characters
View - Formatting Marks is enabled.

I'll confirm as Documentation.
That's what we were supposed to do earlier, as written in https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=117745#c12 and as TorrAB noticed now. Also a move from bug 123091.
1. change Heading 2 for "Display Formatting"
2. move Fields: Hidden text.. and Fields: Hidden paragraphs ... to another page for View in https://help.libreoffice.org/6.4/en-US/text/shared/optionen/01040200.html
@TorrAB: Would you suggest adding something else?
No. This should do it.

These two points were addressed as part of:
And another "Display of" was changed to "Display formatting" in
