*** on a line, pressed enter

These lines are real easy to place and can be very difficult to remove.

The backspace works immediately after the line is created. Later, all it succeeds in doing is moving the line around to a different location but it does not delete it.

Press Ctrl-A to select the entire doc and on the Home tab, Paragraph group, click on the down arrow next to the Border icon and select No Border. This is the only way I know to get rid of lines like this.
