Well, there's no Horizontal Rule under insert. So how is 
this done?


Thanks,

I didn't tick anything. Just selected top border and clicked Okay.

Reviewing your comment I find Merge with next paragraph is ticked
already. At least on my system it is a default, Ubuntu 14.04 and LO 4.2.7.2.

Is it not ticked on your system? If so then perhaps there's a bug, or
platform or version difference. I don't generally remark on defaults unless
there's reason to suspect it may be changed.

This seems to have been removed in version 4.0.0.3 (or earlier?).
See https://bugassistant.libreoffice.org/show_bug.cgi?id=60858 .


So how is this done?


Recommended workarounds:

o Apply a top or bottom border to an existing paragraph or to an 
empty paragraph inserted for the purpose. You can apply this on the 
Borders tab of either the paragraph or paragraph style dialogues.


o Go to View | Toolbars  | Drawing to switch on the Drawing toolbar 
(by default at the bottom of the window). Click the Line icon at the 
left of the new toolbar and drag a line where required. Hold down 
Shift as you release the mouse to achieve an exactly horizontal line. 
Right-click the line and go to Line... to adjust its properties.


I trust this helps.

You're  right Bill. (At least insofar as LO 4.2 is concerned.)  Though it
works for AOO so seems this is a place where the two have diverged.

In any case to insert a horizontal rule I know of two methods...

1. Type three consecutive dashes --- at the beginning of a line and press
enter.
2. Select Format|Paragraph, then the Borders tab, pick a top or bottom
border, a line style width and color and click OK.

Method 1 has the disadvantage that every subsequent paragraph gets
underlined and so the format must be disabled on subsequent paragraphs.

Method 2 suffers the same disadvantage if the border is specified as a
bottom border. However if a top border is selected it is not applied to the
following paragraphs.

  Try this:

1. Use the F11 key to open the Styles and Formation window.
2. At the bottom of this window, change Automatic to All Styles.
3. Go down through the list of paragraph styles until you find 
Horizontal line.

4. Place the cursor on the empty line where you want it to be.
5. Double click Horizontal line .

this only works i delete the autocorrect of a '-', which replaces the 
'-' for a '─'
