What is the minimum-size empty paragraph? How many consecutive blank lines?!
There is no such thing as an blank line in a word processing document
(unless you create them with line breaks, using Shift+Enter);
consecutive presses of Enter create empty paragraphs. When you use
the three-symbol technique to create a border, you need to start in
an empty paragraph, so you will have pressed Enter at the end of the
preceding paragraph. But when you press Enter after the three
characters, you don't keep that separate paragraph; instead, the
border is attached to the previous paragraph. You've pressed Enter
twice, but you've ended up creating only one paragraph end.
If you want the border to be detached from the previous paragraph,
you need to press Enter twice before you enter the three characters -
creating a separate empty paragraph (your "blank line") before you
do. When you press Enter for a third time, you will have your
original paragraph with no border and a separate paragraph (that
separate empty one) containing just the border but otherwise
empty. Three presses of Enter has created two paragraph ends.
I trust this helps.
