    Problem with bullet style border

    I'm trying to fix an error in document I inherited. I'm attaching a screen shot. It's a small table with three bullet points and double lines around the outside. There is a persistent single line under the first bulleted item. border-problem.jpg

    Since I didn't create this, I'm not even sure if it's a table or just a paragraph with a border. When I try to remove the border, the double outside borders go away (which I want to stay). Any tips?

    Thanks greatly!

    Without having the doc for experimenting with I'd say you are dealing with a text box or single cell table within a table.

    It is a bullet style. The style explains the thick and thin borders, but not the single thin border. It is a "box" style.

    If I press [enter] after the first row it adds an underline under the third bullet (what was the second bullet)

    Problem solved: it was a random table border within the bullet grouping
