Shortcuts for Lines in Word

Microsoft Word provides six shortcuts for placing specific styled lines across a page. Not only do these lines look better than (for example) holding the equal sign to repeat a double line across the page, but the length of these lines automatically adjust as the page’s left and right margins are changed.

To create these lines, move the cursor to a blank line in a Word document, type a specific character three times, and then press the enter key. The following screen shot shows both the special character to type and the resulting line inserted by Word.


This tip works in Word 2003, 2007, 2010, and 2013.
