Windows 7: word 2010 insert horizontal line & not automatically

word 2010 insert horizontal line & not automatically

Good People,
Add me to the list of people who don't like the new ribbon.

Before with 2007 I could insert a horizontal line of a certain width AND NOT using the auto option where 3 equals turns into a horizontal line. Now in 2010 the most I can get a minimal width horizontal line.

I do not want to use one of the "graphic" selections. How do I put a 5 point horizontal line on a page. I like these simple things as separators.

Please only respond if you have actually done this on WORD 2010.

Oh yes, must clarify I'm working with the beta version of Word 2010.

Haven't figured out how to make a dashed or dotted line yet.

Hope this helps.

Gary,
Many thanks. At last a workable solution, even if one does have to jump thru hoops. Gage you an "attaboy".

Gary,

I'm getting some strange and inconsistent performance. don't know whether some bulleted lists have anything to do with it or not.

I'll try to get a consistent pattern but am not there yet.

Have you tried customizing the ribbon to suit your needs?

Glad I could help. I haven't played with it too much, but you can also do some things with the border and shading option in pic 3 as shown here.

unwanted horizontal line in Word 2010

I've recently upgraded to Word 2010 (I'm still using XP). In large Word files, out of the clear blue, appear horizontal lines.

Can't get rid of them. They show in printed documents.

I don't know where it comes from - have tried the obvious like making sure there are no borders, etc. The document is left justified, single spaced. The horizontal line is the width of the paragraph.

Can anyone help?

Thanks.
