A series of '#' characters on a line by themselves has generated a bold black double line. How can I remove this line?


You have several options to choose:

  • If you recognize this automatic replacement immediately, just press Ctrl+Z for Undo.
  • A series of # symbols (hash characters) is a keyboard shortcut to creating a solid line as a border below a paragraph in a text document. To remove this line, click anywhere in the paragraph just above the thick line and choose Format > Paragraph. The line set will appear on the Borders tab. Clear the line on the tab page and click OK.
  • To remove the line, keep the cursor in the paragraph above the line and choose Format > Default Formatting.
  • To disable this automatic replacement permanently, choose Tools > AutoCorrect Options, go to the Options tab page, and remove the tick before "Apply border".
