How to Move Horizontal Line in Google Docs

358128 How to Move Horizontal Line in Google Docs
  1. Use borders instead of horizontal lines. You can format paragraph borders and dividers to create horizontal rule effects that can be moved freely.
    • Select the paragraph(s) above and below where you want the line.
    • Go to Format > Paragraph styles > Borders and shading.
    • Choose a bottom border for the top paragraph and a top border for the bottom paragraph in the style and thickness you want.
    • You can then freely move the paragraphs and the border will move with the text.
  2. Use tables instead of horizontal lines. Insert a 1 row by 1 column table and format the borders to create a horizontal line effect. You can then move the table freely to reposition the line.

So in summary, while you can’t directly move a horizontal line, using borders or tables allows you to mimic the effect of moving a horizontal rule. Deleting and re-inserting is also an option, though a bit more work. Let me know if you have any other questions!
