I'm having a weird issue with Word 2004 (v. 11.5.3). I created a horizontal line (by typing ---) a few days ago to divide up two parts of a document I was working on. I then attempted to delete the line but it replicated itself instead. I finally managed to delete one of the lines (through a complete fluke; I never actually figured out how to do it), but the other remained. I scoured the help and asked the office assistant, but neither gave me an answer that worked.
So, I copied and pasted my text into a new document, making sure to NOT copy the line. That seemed to work. Or so I thought. The next time I opened up the new document there was that line, back again.
Oh, and it seems to work pretty strangely. If I put my curser at the beginning of the text just after the line and press delete, my text goes up to the paragraph before the line, and the line jumps down to the end of the paragraph that I just moved.
Can anybody tell me how to delete this strange ghost line?
I have the same darn problem right now! I have no idea how to get it
to go away. It's on a resume.
Did you try the solution that was suggested above? It worked for me... if it doesn't work for you, I don't know what else could be causing it...
