I scanned a document into Word. Next to some of the paragraphs there
is a small square (like the non-printing mark that indicates "Keep
Lines Together" in Word docs). I can't figure out what the mark
indicates, or how to get rid of it. (It doesn't print, nor does it
seem to be causing any harm but I am curious what it is.) Thank you
for any suggestions.

It indicates that the given paragraph is formatted as "Keep with next,"
"Keep lines together," "Page break before," or (rarely) "Suppress line
numbering."

Thank you very much for your suggestions. I have checked each of them
- it is none of those things, but I thank you for your response and
suggestions.

Are you talking about the tiny, filled in black square on the left margin at
the start of a paragraph?

If so, then Suzanne is absolutely 1000% correct.

If not, what are you talking about? Please describe them or better still,
please show us a sample we can see on the Internet.

From the initial description, the "bullet" is the same as the one used to
indicate those "Line and Page Breaks" settings.

I posted a portion of the document to

I is significant that the square appears only in Normal view, not Print
Layout (whereas the "bullet" that indicates the Line and Page Breaks tabs
settings appears in both views).

Viewing the document in Print Layout view reveals two graphic lines (rather
awkwardly placed, and they skew the text); probably the bullet means
"There's a graphic anchored to this paragraph." Deleting those floating
graphics removes the "bullets" as well.
