How to remove the double black line generated while entering several #?

A series of number sign, i.e. #, is a shortcut to create a double-black line attached to the paragraph, which precedes it in the document. To remove it:

  • click anywhere in the paragraph just above the line;
  • select Format ▸ Paragraph ▸ Borders [tab];
  • click on the border until it disappears; and
  • click OK.

Another solution to remove this line:

  • select Format ▸ Clear Direct Formatting (shortcut Ctrl+M)

Be careful when using this: all the direct formatting of selected items will be removed.

To disable this from being automatically generated :

  • select Tools ▸ AutoCorrect ▸ AutoCorrect Options;
  • select the Options tab;
  • uncheck Apply border; and
  • click OK.
