If you have ever wanted to know how to place a line in your Word documents, read on to learn how. This is sometimes a difficult task for some people because they are not familiar with the function of MS Word or they simply don't have the experience doing this. It is not a difficult technique, but it must be done precisely.


1. Positioning the Cursor

First, place the cursor exactly where you want to insert the line. You can add a horizontal bar to get more precise. You'll be able to move it around to your liking and move it around your document as you choose. This is not difficult, but you should practice making sure the location you have selected is where the line should be placed. Placing the cursor is what you should do before you do anything else. If this is not done correctly, your line may be crooked or not professional-looking.
