Hi :)
2 things

1.  Documentation is always playing "catch up"

2.  I think a bug report has been filed to try to get the feature put back into the next release 
(or a subsequent one if it doesn't make it back in so quickly)

Stuart was saying that if you type 3 - or ~ or (errr i can't remember the other character) then it 
creates the whole rest of the line for you.  Much the same happens in emails i think although you 
might have to use more than 3.  So on an empty line in Writer try 




when you press enter after typing "---" a single line appears.  Pressing it after the "~~~" makes a 

However, i have to say that getting a line from the draw menu was inspired.  LibreOffice is 
designed for you to  create things in one of the apps/modules and then pull them into one of the 
other ones.  So you could make something fancy in Draw and then use that in Writer.  If opening 
Writer takes ages but after it's open you open a Draw document you will notice the Draw one appears 
really quite fast.  LO is much more tightly integrated like that than MSO.

Subject: Re: [libreoffice-users] LO 'Insert: Horizontal rule' is missing

I was desperately look for this yesterday morning. I finally 
resorted to drawing a line using the draw menu.

Now I am trying to do it the new way, described below, and 
that doesn't work either.

On this page 
the instructions say:

"1. Create a horizontal line by applying the preset 
Paragraph Style Horizontal Line. Click into an empty 
paragraph, and double-click the Horizontal Line Style in the 
Styles and Formatting window. If the entry for horizontal 
lines is not visible in the list of Paragraph Styles, select 
"All Styles" in the lower listbox."

Well, there is no Horizontal Line Style listed even after 
selecting All Styles.

So, what is the official, documented replacement for Insert 
Horizontal Line?

I see from:

that the omission is a deliberate change rather than accidental (although it seems
the Help info still  thinks otherwise...).

Why on earth drop a feature that people are using?
What is the rationale?

Failing any other solution to my problem, is there any way I can copy the 'ruler' file over in to so that the latter shows the lines properly?
