  • 4. Picture Dilemma
    In a multi page report set with tables, an image inserted within a cell with wrapped text located near top of page will duplicate itself on the previous page. The two images are then linked; what you do to one, you are doing to the other. If the image is in a cell located in the middle to end of page, it behaves normally. I have tried everything I can think of. Can someone help, please?

Cannot draw a horizontal line

Postby SmF5 » Thu, 22 Jan 2009 02:26:01 GMT

Greetings!  I'm attempting to draw a plain horizontal line using the Line 
tool.  The starting point has a green handle on it, and the ending point has 
a red handle on it.  The line will only draw at 45 degree angles.  I am not 
holding the shift or any other keys while I drag the mouse.  Any ideas?

What version of Word are you using?

Which "Line tool" are you using?

Seems like the oddest thing. I tried to add a line with

started to move the line around, and suddenly I could not 
move nor access nor delete nor do anything with the line, 
but it is still there. It prints, it show up in .pdf, and 
I cannot get rid of it for beans. Any help would be 
greatly appreciated, thanks.

5.cannot remove horizontal line in WORD 2003

Hi there,

i entered --- after a paragraph, and Word converted that to a straight line 
under the paragraph that is now impossible to remove! If i delete the space 
in between, the line jumps to a lower paragraph break. The only thing I can 
do is move that line an inch up or down.

Anybody has any suggestions how to get rid of that line??
