Subject DO NOT REPLY [Bug 118875] New: Removing paragraph border is unintuitive
Date Mon, 06 Feb 2012 22:13:21 GMT

             Bug #: 118875
        Issue Type: DEFECT
           Summary: Removing paragraph border is unintuitive
    Classification: Application
           Product: Word processor
           Version: version58
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P3
         Component: formatting

Open Office has a terrific feature that lets one add a horizontal line by
placing four dashes in a new paragraph. However, it is not clear to the user
that the horizontal line is actually a border to the preceding paragraph,
rather (due to the manner in which it is added) it is perceived as being an
entity all its own. Therefore it is not clear to the user how to remove it.

Users try to backspace over the "entity" that is the horizontal line, and this
of course does not work. Sometimes users try to highlight it and then press
Enter, which results in a _second_ horizontal line appearing!

Please devise an intuitive way to remove this horizontal line. I can make
suggestions based on what users try to do to the line to remove it.
