Horizontal Rule Properties

The Horizontal Rule Properties dialog allows you to insert an HTML HR tag into your work. Click the horizontal rule toolbar button to open the Horizontal Rule Properties panel.

In the Element ID text box, enter the value for the ID attribute to uniquely identify the horizontal rule on the page.

The Width of a horizontal rule is relative to the page width. In the Width text box enter a number that can represent either pixels or percentages of the page width. Select one of these two options from the associated drop-down menu.

In the Height text box, enter the number of pixels for the horizontal rule's height. The greater the number is, the thicker the line will be.

The H Align drop-down menu contains the options for the position of the horizontal rule relatively to the page width:

Note: If the rule is exactly as wide as the page, aligning it to the left, right, or center would not make a difference in its position. But when the rule's width is smaller than the page width, then its alignment options will be visible.

If you check the Shading option, the inside area of the horizontal rule will be transparent. If left unchecked, the rectangle corresponding to the horizontal rule will be filled with a shade of gray.
