Chapter 11. Working with Graphics > Working with Horizontal Lines

Working with Horizontal Lines

Even users who don’t work with graphics need to know how to insert a simple horizontal line. You see these lines in every type of document, from memos to schedules to fax cover sheets to expense reports. I’m creatively challenged, but I still like to use a simple line to separate sections of a form. Rest assured, you don’t have to learn how to work with graphics just to place a line on a page. I’ll show you how to insert graphic lines right now, and if you like, you can come back to the rest of this chapter when you are ready to play with pictures.

Inserting a Horizontal Line

Horizontal lines help the reader visually separate sections of your document. For example, when you create a fax cover sheet, you often separate the heading information (TO:, FROM:, FAX:) from the message area with a line that extends from one margin to the other. Most of us are content to use the simple black line that stretches from one margin to the next. As you’ll see here, you can quickly insert a basic line, or you can take a few more seconds to create a customized line.
