... I have come across an omission in its LO ..., namely 'Insert: Horizontal rule'

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.

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


o Type three or more asterisks, underscores, equals signs, negative signs, hash marks, or swung dashes as a new paragraph (immediately followed by Enter, that is). Instead of seeing a new paragraph, you will see one of a variety of borders attached to the preceding paragraph. This line is a property of that paragraph, not an entity by itself - but the relevant paragraph can be otherwise empty, of course.

o You can instead apply such borders directly to a paragraph or paragraph style. Right-click in the paragraph and select Paragraph... or Edit Paragraph Style... as preferred. Go to the Borders tab and select a style and position for a border - above or below the paragraph. Again, the paragraph itself could be empty.

I trust this helps.
