Drawing Borders Automatically

Type three asterisks (***) at the beginning of a line, press Enter, and Word transforms your asterisks into a dotted-line border. Word also makes borders out of three hyphens (---), underscores (___), plus signs (+++), or equal signs (===) typed at the beginning of any line. If a border isnít what you want, immediately press Alt+Backspace (the Undo shortcut), and Word will restore what you originally typed.
