Automatic Insertion of Bar Across Page - FOUND PROBLEM
« on: Sun Apr 04, 2010 - 00:08:46 »
When I  use a series of - - - - - - and then hit ENTER I get the following bar across the page.

____________________________________________ ____________________________


When I hit ______ and then hit ENTER I get the following dark bold bar across the page.


_________________________________________________________________


This just started in the last few days and it's driving me nuts. I think I picked it up when I copied an article from WikipediA, but thought I got rid of it

HELP - How do I clear this formatting or whatever it is?

After  you hit enter and get that bar, hit backspace and the bar will revert to what you typed.

Thank you and you are right as long as I am initially typing a document, but it is a nuisance and if I get rid of it in a former paragraph by eliminating the space between paragraphs, and then separating them with the ENTER KEY again, the bar travels downward beneath the following paragraph. Attempting to clear them I have wound up with four such bars gathered above one another. I am presently in the process of editing a hundred or more more pages of a bible study.

I did take my spare computer and checked all the options on TOOLS to see if they were the same as my newer computer and they are checked the same. I haven't went through all options on the "Customize tool Bar" yet, but then this just started happening as far as I can remember.

Thanks for anything you can come up with in ideas Brother Bond. You say to take it back to the computer shop?  rofl

Dear Brother Bond, I discovered the problem I was having, though I'm not certain it will transfer on this forum, but there was a change in formatting with the following sentence which from that point on continued throughout the remainder of the document.

When I isolated where the problem started I pasted it to a NEW DOCUMENT and then I went to FORMAT and selected AutoFormat and it cleared the problem. I then returned to the problem and used REVEAL FORMATTING and it revealed the added following information.

Character Spacing:
Don't adjust space between Latin and Asian text
Don't adjust space between Asian text and numbers.

Borders:
Bottom: (Single solid line, Auto, 0.75 pt)



. And I say again, there are many of them.
