--- Comment #2 from sully317@gmail.com 2012-02-25 19:22:13 UTC ---
I have successfully reproduced this bug under the following configurations:

Configuration1

OOo-dev: OOO340m0 (Build:9583)
Operating system: Mac OS X Lion 10.7.3 (11D50b)
Memory: 8 GB 1067 MHz DDR3
Processor: 2.53 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo

Configuration2

OpenOffice.org 3.3.0: OOO330m20 (Build:9567)
Operating system: Mac OS X Lion 10.7.3 (11D50b)
Memory: 8 GB 1067 MHz DDR3
Processor: 2.53 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo

I was unable to locate duplicates of this bug in the Apache Bugzilla system.

Steps to reproduce

1 Close OOo-dev, if open
2 Launch OOo-dev or OpenOffice.org application
3 From the "File" menu, select File -> New -> Text Document
4 Type 3 dashes: "---" and press <enter> to create a Horizontal Rule
5 Press <delete>
6 Horizontal rule is not deleted

I would have expected this horizontal rule to be deleted after the last Step to
reproduce.

Follow up test 1

1 Close OOo-dev / OpenOffice.org application, if open
2 Execute steps to reproduce
3 Press <enter>
4 Another horizontal rule is created
5 Press <enter>
6 Yet another horizontal rule is created

Each time I pressed <return>, I expected the cursor to have moved to the next
line, pushing the horizontal rule further down the page. I did not expect an
additional horizontal rule to be created each time I pressed <enter>.

Follow up test 2

1 Close OOo-dev / OpenOffice.org application, if open
2 Launch OOo-dev / OpenOffice.org application
3 From the OOo-dev / OpenOffice.org application splash screen, click on "Text
Document"
4 From the menu bar, select Insert -> Horizontal Ruler
5 Click "Plain"
6 Click OK
7 Press <enter>
8 Press <enter>

Each time I pressed <return>, I expected the cursor to have moved to the next
line, pushing the horizontal rule further down the page. I did not expect an
additional horizontal rule to be created each time I pressed <enter>.

Why might this be an important bug to fix?

Document authors do utilize the horizontal rule in order to provide logical
separation of segments of a given document. Given that OpenOffice appears to
position itself as a professional-grade word processing solution, I think
addressing this bug will improve the usefulness of the software for its users,
and help present the software as a professional-grade platform in the market.

This bug may simply be a matter of cursor positioning after insertion of the
horizontal rule document element. I did try creating and deleting horizontal
rules in Google Docs. When a horizontal rule is inserted in GoogleDocs
Documents, the cursor is placed after the horizontal rule, enabling an easy
deletion.
