When using Word 2007 I wish to have two lines that are 3 inches wide, such as for a signature line. Both 3 inch lines should be on the same line. When I type the line with underscore and after more than perhaps 2 inches display the line will automatically span the whole page left to right. How do I tell Word NOT to do this and ONLY show the length I wish to show?

Try the following.
1.Open the word coumnet and click on the "office Button" on top left hand corner. And then click on "word options".
 2. In the pop-up window choose proofing and then on the right hand side click on "Auto Correct Options" button.
3. Click on "Autoformat As You Type" tab and under "Apply As you Type"  section uncheck border lines.
4. Click ok until you are out of options window and are back on your document.

Good Luck!!!!

One more thing you can try is using "undo" (ctrl+z) as soon as your line goes page long.
