This may or may not be new to AI, but I ran across a way to quickly draw a line across the page in Word.
Type 3 pound signs ### and press 'enter'
This also works for asterisk *** ; underline ___; hyphen --- ; equal ===; and tilde ~~~
Of course, the lines look differently according to the first three characters. There may be more, but that's all I know about. I tried them in Mac Mail. Didn't work. Tried in AI. Didn't work. It may ONLY work in Word.
Some forums have a 'HINT' thread. Anyone interested in a hint thread in AI? How about a thread about apps tried and critiques about them?
