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.
