How to Insert a Horizontal Line in Word 2007
If you want to insert a horizontal line in a Word 2007 document, you can quickly do so. This is useful if you want to divide a section or your document or want to make a certain section stand out. You can place the line wherever you want in your document and can even make it stretch across the length of the page.
Open Word and click "Insert" from the Word ribbon.
Select "Shapes" from the menu. A drop-down menu opens with shapes you can add to your document.
Look to the "Lines" section of the shapes list and click the first line. A crossbar for drawing the shape appears on the Word document.
Click the crossbar on the space where you want to insert the line and drag the crossbar to the right to insert a horizontal line.
Release your mouse to finish. If you need to move or change the length of the horizontal line, simply click the line and drag it to a different position or drag one of the sizing handles on the end to re-size the line.
Tips & Warnings
- Press the "Shift" key while drawing the line to keep the line straight.
