button from the toolbar:
The button has two areas:
Click the icon on the left to use the currently

Horizontal Rule Properties
The Horizontal Rule Properties panel is displayed
when you select a horizontal rule (by clicking it) inserted in page. It
corresponds to the <HR> tag in the Tag Selector:
To configure this panel, follow the instructions below:
In the Element ID text
box enter the value for the id attribute. It will
uniquely identify the element (horizontal rule) in page.
The width of a horizontal rule is relative to
the page width. In the Width text box enter
a number that can represent either pixels or percents (of the page width).
Select one of these two options from the associated drop-down menu.
In the Height text box
enter the number of pixels for the horizontal rule's height. The greater
the number is, the deeper the delimitation space (between the two paragraphs
the horizontal line separates) will be.
The H Align drop-down
menu contains the options for the position of the horizontal rule relatively
to the page's width:
Note: If the rule is as wide as the page, aligning it to the
left, right, center, would not make a difference in its position. But
when the rule's width is smaller than the page width, then its alignment
options will be visible.
If you check the Shading
option, the inside area of the horizontal rule (its thickness is given
but the height) will be transparent. If left unchecked, the rectangle
corresponding to the horizontal rule will be filled with a shade of gray.
