Here’s a quick trick for adding a little panache to your document. It’s a trick that works in Word, OpenOffice, or LibreOffice. To add a straight line, type three or more dashes and press enter.
Want a double line? Try three equal signs and hit the enter key.
For a thicker double line hit three # signs.
In Word, if you hit three asterisks, you’ll get a broken line like this.
In LibreOffice and OpenOffice, it will just give you a medium thickness double-line

Doesn’t seem to work in office 365 Word
That’s the program that I did the screenshots with, I’m not sure what the issue is.
What could I be doing wrong? I opened a blank word document, typed some text then 3 dashes. Got the text and 3 dashes.
Tried on a blank line and 3 dashes = 3 dashes. same with 3 = and 3 #
Could there be a setting in Options that I do not have set correctly?
