Using horizontal rules

Using horizontal rules

Horizontal rules (lines) are useful for organizing information. On a page, you can visually separate text and objects with one or more rules.

To create a horizontal rule:

  1. In the Document window, place the insertion point where you want to insert a horizontal rule.
  2. Do one of the following:
    • Select Insert > HTML > Horizontal Rule.
    • In the HTML category of the Insert bar, click the Horizontal Rule button.

To modify a horizontal rule:

  1. In the Document window, select the horizontal rule.
  2. Select Window > Properties to open the Property inspector, and modify the properties as desired:

    W and H specify the width and height of the rule in pixels or as a percentage of the page size.

    Align specifies the alignment of the rule (Default, Left, Center, or Right). This setting applies only if the width of the rule is less than the width of the browser window.

    Shading specifies whether the rule is drawn with shading. Deselect this option to draw the rule in a solid color.
