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.

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.

Try selecting all the text of the document and Format - Paragraph - Borders -> Set No borders. It worked for me
