    Hi Sally, I have a similar problem to this black line, but I can not highlight underneath the big black line. I tried highlighting the text above it, and selecting no border, but nothing happened. When I selected a border to test it, a new line appeared, so I don't think it's the same problem. Its quite a small line (length), and it persists throughout different documents, including new ones. Could you suggest a solution to this?
