There’re many types of lines in Word you can put in the document as a kind of separation. If you tend to use them frequently, it may not be the best way to add lines from the Insert tab every time. Therefore, I’d like to share some easier ways basically don’t need mouse clicks.
1. Straight Line
It’s the most common line in Word. To quick insert it, just press “–” key on your keyboard for 3 times and then press [Enter]. Then the “—” will be converted to a long straight line automatically.
2. Double Straight Line
Similarly, input “=” for 3 time and then press [Enter] key. “===” will be converted to a double straight line.
3. Triple Straight Line
Input “#” (press Shift+3) for 3 times and then press [Enter] key.
4. Wavy Line
Input “~” (press Shift+`) for 3 times and then press [Enter] key.
5. Dotted Line
Input “*” (press Shift+8) for 3 times and then press [Enter] key.
