[Solved] Still unable to remove lines

Hi,

I have tried the options of Format > Borders > line arrangement (no borders), Line Style -none-, remove the checkbox for properties of merge with next paragraph (and re put it back in too). I don't seem to be able to remove the borders, even using several of the help comments in here. I've put in an upload attachment. Any one have any ideas?

Thanks,

Vic

The lines you are seeing are OpenOffice section dividers. Turn on the Navigator (/View /Navigator or F5 key) to see them listed. Remove these Sections by /Format /Sections : Remove. They do not print.

 Edit: These Sections may insert because their text is pasted from the Internet. Try /Edit /Paste Special : Unformatted text to avoid them

That did it! Although I had to do a different way to remove them, thank you so much!

/Edit /Paste Special : unformatted text only works at Paste time; /Format /Sections : Remove should remove the selected section, placing its content into the main body of the text.

See [Tutorial] Differences between Writer and MS Word files for why you should always work in and save files as .odt.

Problem is, everyone else uses the doc/docx.

Read the Tutorial. At one time everybody used horses but something better came along called a car.
