unwanted separator line in header

Hi

I'm new to LibreOffice!

I've just tried inserting a separator line in the footer of my document. I opened Styles and formatting, selected footer and modify. I then selected a separator line by clicking the top border. This worked fine.

Only, now my header has this line as well. I have no idea how it got there. I tried deleting the header, but that didn't work. I've looked at the paragraph style for the header, but supposedly there is no separator line selected.

Any ideas on how I can get rid of that line?

I really don't think my cursor was in the header line, but I must have applied the footer style to the header.

I wanted to answer your question: "What is the actual paragraph style of your header?" While looking for that information I noticed there are two ways to change the formatting of the header.

1) paragraphs and styles -> header -> modify. Here there were no borders or lines defined. 2) click in the header and choose Format header. Here I did see a border defined. I removed it and also selected 'header of".

The header and the unwanted separator line are gone.

Thanks for setting me on the right track.

What is the actual paragraph style of your header? I presume that you somehow applied the Footer paragraph style to the header (e.g., double-clicked the Footer style on the sidebar while your cursor was in header line).

Also, what means "I tried deleting the header, but that didn't work" - do you mean that you tried to delete contents from header, or did you disable header at all in page's style? A presume the former, because that latter should've removed the line.
