Chapter 12. Adding Graphics to Documents > Using Lines and Borders

Using Lines and Borders

Although images are the most obvious graphic elements one adds to a document, other elements such as lines and borders also add visual impact and help organize the text in the mind of the reader. Horizontal lines can help identify divisions or sections of text—for example, a horizontal line that separates the heading information of a memo (TO:, FROM:, and so on) from the message of the memo. Vertical lines help the reader follow the flow of text—for example, in the columns of a newsletter.

Inserting Horizontal and Vertical Lines

To insert a horizontal line that extends from one margin to the other, simply place the cursor where you want the line, and choose Insert, Line, Horizontal Line, or press Ctrl+F11. WordPerfect places a thin, single, black line in your document (see Figure 12.19). Because the line is a graphical line, not based on text characters, it fits perfectly between the margins even if you later change the margins or the font of the document.
