Hi :)
Errr, i don't think people were suggesting the o.p. had done anything
wrong or not followed instructions.  It's more likely that almost all
of us are remembering having been in a similar situation.  As we
become wiser we take more precautions against it but i bet most of us
can remember some horrendous incident where the loss has seemed
overwhelming at the time.

One time a 'prank' made my heart race so much i thought it would
explode out of my chest and the room started spinning and i
sat/stumbled heavily.  When i found it had just been a prank i didn't
have enough left in me to be angry.
Regards from
Tom :)

How can I remove them?

That sounds like a border applied to the paragraph either above or below
the line. Assuming that's what's happened, to get rid of it:
- Right-click in the paragraph immediately above the line
- Click the "Paragraph..." option from the context menu
- Click the "Borders" tab

Just fyi, Mark and list, I have encountered the same error and have been
delinquent not to report it and provide a sample document. Keep telling
myself "next time I will". I think the next "next time" it is a promise I
must keep.


Because none of the techniques for removing the presumed paragraph border
may have worked. Even going so far as "Select All" then "Clear Direct
Formatting" has only partially worked.

What is "partially worked"? The line is removed. However when additional
paragraphs are entered in the document the line reappears in its original

I might have posted a remark on this about the time of one of the recent
recurring conversations about reveal codes.

The only successful workarounds I've found for this are recreate from a
blank sheet a new version of the document and copy / paste as text the
contents of the old document. Or open AOO writer and paste the contents
there. For whatever reason the persistent formatting problem doesn't paste
into the AOO document.

Note: The steps Select All, Copy, Delete, Paste As Text in the LO source
document does not eliminate the persistent formatting problem. Only Paste
As Text into a new document will.

Just wanted to let all know that if the op has tried the suggested fixes
and found none to work folks shouldn't presume that the directions were not
correctly followed.
