Chiming in late here, but did you ever get a resolution to this? I don't fully understand how inserting a soft return caused a single line to fit across the page -- surely that must have resulted in two lines?? At any rate, I would use the Frame Below property to add the separator line, and I would specify a large number of Widow/Orphan lines on the pagination tab. My test document in FM 7.0 does not break a pgf at a soft return with Orphans set to 5, so I think that would work with your one or two line situation.
