Default Two Issues Remove Line and unwanted space

I have two issues I need help with.
First I have used the ____ underline by holding down the shift key and tapping the underline character. For instance if I wanted to display an addition problem like 123 On line one then + 456 on line two then draw a line under the math problem. Sometimes, after I draw the line inder the math problem and hit enter a thick dark line goes across the whole page and I can't figure out how to delete that thick dark line going across the whole page and replace it with a short line that JUST goes under the math problem. Undo arrow is no help.


123
+456
____
579
Any Ideas?

My second issue is that when creating a large or complicated document that I want to email, I want to create the document in Word then when I am finished, I cut and paste it into Windows Mail for Vista.

For some reason when I paste the document into Mail the line spacing goes crazy and an additional line is inserted making the whole document show double spacing between lines. Any idea how to fix?
Thanks in advence,
John

Default Lines and spaces

1. The border you are getting is an autoformatting feature of Word, which I believe was in 97; certainly in 2003 and on. I believe you will find it in Tools/Autocorrect options, on the "Autoformat as you type" tab or a similar one. If the Borders box is checked, uncheck it.
As for getting rid of the ones you have, select the text immediately above and below, and select Format/Borders & shading. Remove any borders.

2. I may be mistaken on this, but it sounds as if the extra line spaces may be hard returns (Enter) at the end of your orginal lines. In your original Word doc, try typing Ctrl+Shift+8 to reveal the hidden paragraph marks. If that doesn't reveal them, look up "display hidden characters" in Help. If you see a paragraph mark (the "backwards P") at the end of each line, that is probably the cause.

You can remove them quickly by inserting a tab at the beginning of each new paragraph, if there isn't one already; then replacing all the paragraph marks (^p) with nothing, then replacing all the tabs (^t) with paragraph, tab (^p^t) to re-establish your paragraphs.

Does this solve your problem?

Ulodesk,
Thank you. You solved the line problem. I have not found if the double spacing problem has been solved. I'll let you know. Thanks again,
John
