I am having difficulty removing a horizontal line in the middle of a Libre Office document. The line was created by automatic conversion of three special characters (hyphens) into a paragraph style border (lower edge).

I have tried suggestions from previous forums: Going into Format - Paragraph - Borders and hitting Set No Borders. When I do, the line just moves up to the previous paragraph, or another one gets added. I unchecked "Merge with next Paragraph", tried highlighting the entire document and "Setting No Borders" - nothing works.

I'm on Libre version 4.4 on Windows 7.

Thanks!

A few tricks that worked for me:

  • Select the offending paragraph and Clear formatting.

  • Select the offending paragraph (and maybe some above and below) and apply another paragraph style, then apply the original.

Did you try backspacing? in fron of the line? mine usually dissappears that way.
